Clients: can live with ’em, can’t live without ’em

One question you should never ask a web designer:

So… how much does a web site cost?
This is like asking someone how much a car costs (it depends on what you want).

This post was inspired by If Architects Had To Work Like Web Designers…, which really hits the nail on the head. Not all clients are this bad, but most have a few of the traits, and some have all of them.
