Ok, the forum gods may flog me with rotten fish for posting this, but it's good for laughs.

Brilliant stuff!
As our names are published with each post, I shall refrain from sharing similar stories from my 20 years in the biz!

It's hard to laugh through all these tears of frustration. Man, that hits so close to home!

This is my favorite so far, and this is as far as I will go:

Client: “So, can’t you write anything? Look at the pictures and write some poetry. The pictures are so alluring. Words should flow. If I give you any information, then you’ll only copy-paste it.”

Me: “But, we need some information.”

Client: “I will either give you money or information. Choose what you want carefully.”

My vote for best

My vote goes to Mister Internet Search who demands all competitors' results be deleted or else.

I work in advertising (geek side, not creative), so you'd be surprised (or not) how many similarly inane statements I come across.

Related gem: "We searched for our company name in Google and we got plenty of results, so why do we need to pay for Search Marketing?"

Yea.
