“You can have the car in any color you want, as long as it’s black”

Isn’t that what Henry Ford said about his new car’s? Don’t you love when someone says to you, “oh you do what you think is best, or I don’t know, your the expert.” Only to argue at the end because they don’t like it so your told you didn’t listen. You did what you wanted, not what I wanted. Your made to feel selfish. In fact no matter how many times over the years I’ve encountered this situation and thought I saw it coming before I started, I was wrong. Wrong from the other person’s perspective. Wrong cause I still get sucked in. I should protect myself by having it writing, get a tape recorder. Something! If you asked for my opinion and you don’t like it fine. But if you pay for my opinion, tell me to do what I think is right only to give me shit for it afterwards because it isn’t to “your” liking then yes it is my fault. Mine because this is never going to change. I can spot the problem within the first minute of conversation so I should walk away. You are thinking then why not give them what they wanted. Doesn’t always work because sometimes it still isn’t right. I say this because I do get paid for my opinion when it comes to making decisions on hair, makeup, and fashion choices. Now this is regarding modeling. When it comes to my private clientele that’s different. There we both have a say. Now I hate to be the one to tell you this but, No, the customer is not always right. And I can say this because I get paid for my opinion! R-
