I once had a logo design client who wanted me to work off the ideas of his thirteen year old daughter. After over 15 re-do's we finally produced something horrible that she liked and I didn't want to put my name to the work it was that bad.
What was your worst client?
I once had a female client who had a massive crush on me and it became really awkward after awhile since she was a lot older and not very attractive... That was definitely the worse client I had, at a time when I needed the work as well.
Well, I can say that I've never experienced that particular situation myself -- but it doesn't sound so bad! ;)
I've had the good fortune of working with some of the most laid-back, gracious people I've ever met...but I have heard a lot of horror stories from underappreciated, overworked friends.
I think maybe this says it all:

LOL. Kristy, that's an awesome image. That just about says it all when dealing with people.
Wait...is this a joke?
Wow. Why didn't he just have his daughter do the work? That would've been a better use of your time and theirs. Not to mention, if the guy trusted his daughter's judgment so much he should've just stuck with that. On the other hand, I'd like to see a pic to see what we are talking about here. Some teens can do great designs. :) Just saying...
Yeah, I know right? I mostly hate it when I think a job is going to be easy then I find out I'm going going to make like 50 cents an hour. I have to finish my education.
Freelancing is SO much better in theory than reality. What SHOULD take 5 hours takes 8 every time, and you've usually priced it for 4 to get the job.
Oh do I understand more than you realize. :) I feel for all of you who have dealt with difficult client(s). I'm glad I don't have that many but when I do I think about the four other jobs I could complete in the amount of time it takes to please one of them.
