Why purple flying monkies?
I would not go as far as to say it is an inside joke, but perhaps it might be. As a web designer/builder for well over 10 years, I have come across all sorts of different clients. Many of them, luck for my sanity, have a good idea of where what they want to do on their website and (more importantly) a good understanding of what things are easy to do, and what are difficult. I don’t ever expect that a client will understand if a request is a simple change, or if it is a challenge. But the good clients will respect that in the world of web design, sometimes things that seem like they would be a 2 minute change can take hours, and some things that seem huge might be 5 minutes.
I say most clients understand that…but there are a few clients that, well, just don’t get it. And it never fails that their random, off the wall request will come at the 11th. That type of a request is jokingly referred to a “purple flying monkey” request…something random, off the wall, and with really no feasible merit to it. And those come along all the time.
With that said…a bit more about me. I am a Web Product/Implementation/Design guru (self described of course). My current position is with Platformic, which is a SaaS (software as a service) company based out of San Diego. But, I live in Fresno California, which I advocate to anyone that will listen is the 5th largest city in California, with my beautiful wife and spitfire daughter.
In case you are filling out a scorecard at home, not really a “hobby” type of guy. I have been trying to get into golf again after a decent hiatus, with mixed results. I love college football, and everything that it represents and stands for, as well as the biyearly fortnight spectacle that is the Olympic Games
