Designers and clients see everything so differently that a conflict is only a question of time . To illustrate this, 'Trust Me, I'm A "Designer"' made a witty animation that lists the things that cause the biggest disagreements.

From typefaces, to software - professionals and their clients cannot be any more different. It hits the very core of the problematic relationship between the two groups and shows why designers and clients will never be friends.

I do not see a contradiction here. A client normally uses Word, a program to write text and to give it _some_formatings. It is clear that professionalls for other jobs than writing a text will use other programs...be it Photoshop for editing graphics, Eclise for programming Java, or a CAD programm to specify a house.

One of the things I hate the most!! If they see an "empty" space, THEY MUST fill it up. They are paying for the whole space, so use it, dammit!!! *sigh*

From a contracting point of view, this is how it ought to be, and I think it is fine. The profesionall proposes, the client selects...and pays. The right to wield the erasor comes with the duty to pay the invoice. Now things look much more positive, do they? :)
