  • Clients playing along

    A client came in the other day to get some designs done. I did them and emailed a proof to him. He came back and said that it was his brother that I should email. Oops, I didn't realise he had a brother. So I emailed brother B who made changes and signed the artwork off.

    When that was signed off, the brother B said that I should email a third brother about quantities. Turns out the first client that came in was brother C all along. Probably wondering where his proof had gone to. The other 2 brothers didn't actually know anything about the job.

    I see brother A a few times a year. At least that's what I thought. Now I'm thinking that all 3 brothers may look alike and while I've met brother A, it could have been B or even C.

    I just found out that 2 of the brothers work at the same company. This whole time, I've been thinking it was just 1 guy that's really busy.

    And before you ask, they all have different names, but for some reason, I must have thought they were nicknames for the same guy. Oops.

      It's clearly an elaborate prank.

        I've had similar things go horribly wrong in the past. Though it was a brother, son, wife type thing.

          Could be triplets, hard to tell and it hasn't been appropriate to ask.

          Obsidian, that sounds dodgy.

          It would be great fun to play pranks on people if you had a double.
