    This client said what most of them probably think. At least one of my clients from my agency days was obviously bent when I informed them I was taking time off. As if the world stops spinning if you’re not working on their account for five days.

    Unless you are an employee of their company, on the payroll, receiving benefits, you don’t have to abide by their HR structure. I think some clients think that because they pay you, they own your soul. Glad you laughed, because that’s exactly what I would have done…and then asked myself whether the $ was worth it.

    I might suggest a beach bucket and shovel for getting said client’s head out of his ass.

    The nerve of some people.

    I worked with a guy at a Boston agency who doesn’t think people should take vacations. He should hook up with this client. They can drop dirt on agency folks who like to occasionally engage in some R&R. This guy was really whacked – he thought that people should work 24/7 to service their clients.

    The funny thing about him – he couldn’t deliver a project on time, he never listened to what the client had to say, and he acted like a 5 year old whenever a client didn’t want to do what he thought they should do.

    He now has a blog on Fast Company where he feels that summer is a waste of time because (in his mind) everyone wants to play and no one wants to work.
