Look what I found...

a picture of the philistine, measuring something no doubt.

Normally I would not be so base as to name and shame, but I do think that this could serve as a lesson to all when selecting clients....Blah,blah,blah...
Oh, who am I kidding ? No, this is exactly what it appears to be - a little philistine bashing.

One should not work for clients who are:
1. Control freaks - especially when the emphasis is on the freak.
2. Petite Bourgeois - especially when they think they are Haute Bourgeois, and you know they are not.
3. Bankers - who then become unhappy housewives, and who then become unsuccessful antique dealers, and who then become unsuccessful handbag designers, and who then become shoe* designers - all in the space of three short years and several tainted lives.
4. Hagglers - it shows they do not value your services and that they are cheap - cheap people are just that, and their lives reflect it regardless of their surroundings.
5. People you hate - because regardless of the overwhelming desire to watch them crash and burn, it will show in your work.

* Suffice it to say I would not be caught dead in them or work for the type of woman who would wear them. Perugia she's not.

I totally agree with not working with the hagglers....walk away immediately unless you don't value your own services.
