Client calls and tells me to do x, y and z.
Client follows up call with an e-mail, saying explicitly to do x, y an z.
I do x, y and z. I follow up with an e-mail stating I did x, y, and z.
This was a month ago.
Client calls today, very pissed off, to ask why did y happen?
I e-mail client, forwarding them their e-mail instructing me to do x, y and z.
Client calls, and says there must have been miscommunication, and why didn't I call them about this?
I respond, saying there was no miscommunication, that it explicity had said to do x, y and z.
Client is still pissed at me for doing y. Despite his instructing me to do so.
I can't win. Stupid people.
Edit - I'm still aggravated. This is the first time I have ever been blamed by a client for doing what they wanted me to do. Unbelievable.
