A new website styling project for a multi-million pound turnover company had been agreed (verbally) to be paid in advance. Nice...
Deadline was set for 2 weeks' time.

2 weeks later...
Work was well underway despite not being paid yet.
Client: "How's it going? Sorry we haven't paid you yet. Question - can you do a better deal in cash???"

Me: "Hmmm, what did you have in mind? To be honest this is slightly worrying - are there 'cashflow' issues I should be aware of?"

Client: "No we just have an abundance of cash in note form! Things are going very well!"

Me: "That's good. *phew* So, I'd be happy to take some of that cash off your hands (at the originally agreed amount) to save you some banking fees."

I don't know whether to laugh or cry, so I did both!
Cheeky bastard!!
