I found this list over the internet and I can relate myself to it to the core. It definitely is something from every web devs heart.

Any similarity with real people/events is purely coincidental and no-one should feel targeted, I’ve made this list solely for fun.

So here it is (in no particular order):

  1. Pre-reserve your domain and hosting with a small and obscure foreign web based company.
  2. Assume that those who made your website also inherited the technical support for your emails.
  3. Send all your texts on plain old paper, but not handwritten. It’s important that the guy who has to retype them knows that there is a digital version somewhere.
  4. When the webmaster ask for your logo, give him an old business card that was in your wallet for the last 3 years.
  5. When he ask “what you would like to be able to change by yourself in your website”, answer “everything!”. And when the site is done, send him your stuff instead of changing it yourself.
  6. Ask him a for “plug & play” quotation, Ex.: “I’d like a quotation of the site with and without a shopping cart, with and without the gallery ..” and so on for every single part of your site.
  7. Send him drafts, let him integrate them, then send some corrections.. iterate over and over until he collapse crying in a corner of the room.
  8. Although you don’t know anything about the web (and proclaim it), insist that the web designers do the site exactly like you want it instead of what they think would be best for you.
  9. During the initial meeting, brag that you will write all the needed texts over night and send them back the next morning. Then give no sign of life for the next 3 month and call back asking “Is my site done yet ?!”
  10. Tell him you need a Youtube like website but with Facebook functionalities and the simplicity of Google. Of course you have a very limited budget and the quotation must be on your desk for the next morning.

Bonus: When you receive your quotation argue that your nephew can do it for a fraction of the price in his basement.

A six-year-old boy told his father he wanted to marry the little girl across the street. The father, being modern and well-schooled in handling children, hid his smile behind his hand.

“That’s a serious step,” he said. ” Have you thought it out completely?”
“Yes,” his young son answered. “We can spend one week in my room and the next in hers. It’s right across the street, so I can run home if I get scared of the dark.”

“How about transportation?” the father asked.

“I have my wagon, and we both have our tricycles,” the little boy answered.

The boy had an answer to every question the father raised.

Finally, in exasperation, his dad asked, “What about babies? When you’re married, you’re liable to have babies, you know.”

“We’ve thought about that, too,” the little boy replied.
“We’re not going to have babies. Every time she lays an egg, I’m going to step on it!”

A woman was shopping at her local supermarket where she selected:

a half-gallon of 2% milk,
a carton of eggs,
a quart of orange juice,
a head of romaine lettuce,
a 2 lb. can of coffee and
a 1 lb. package of bacon.

As she was unloading her items on the conveyor belt to check out, a drunk standing behind her watched as she placed the items in front of the cashier. While the cashier was ringing up her purchases, the drunk calmly stated, “You must be single.”

The woman was a bit startled by this proclamation, but she was intrigued by the derelict’s intuition, since she was indeed single. She looked at her six items on the belt and saw nothing particularly unusual about her selections that could have tipped off the drunk to her marital status. Curiosity getting the better of her, she said “Well, you know what, you’re absolutely correct. But how on earth did you know that?”

The drunk replied, “Cause you’re ugly.”

Wake me up before I change again
Remind me the story that I won´t get insane
Tell me why it´s always the same
Explain me the reason why I´m so much in pain
