Everyone has special terminology

If you talk to any professional, you'll find that he or she uses a number of terms that you may not understand.

And I mean ANY professional. Not just the computer scientists - I bet that the fry cooks and janitors have a bunch of terms that mystify most of us.

You'd think that with the advent of modern word processing, a number of terms related to document formatting would be generally known. But, according to Clients from Hell, that's not necessarily the case.

A client did not like the fact that a block of text was evenly aligned on the left, but was not evenly aligned on the right. The vendor then asked a question to confirm what the client wanted.

Me: “Justified?”

Client: “I don’t have to justify anything for you. I own the [EXPLETIVE DELETED] company.”

If you want to see the expletive, go here. And be sure to subscribe to Clients From Hell - it's always an enjoyable read.
