On the website Clients from Hell, readers can write in with stories about the worst clients they’ve ever had to deal with. I can’t verify this story, but yesterday’s entry was hilarious and depressing (if true):
I was hired by a religious group to do an illustration for their printed brochure. They loved it, and I sent them an invoice. Two months later I hadn’t been paid.
I called them, and their manager said they had prayed to God about my invoice, and He told them to use the money for their cause instead.
I waited a few minutes and called him back. I told him that I had prayed to God about it, and He said they should pay me.
They sent me a check.
It wouldn’t surprise me if it actually happened given how little Christians tip on some occasions.
