What industry is your depicted company even in, anyway? What do they produce (or rather, from this hapless client's view, fails to produce)? Just curious.

Note from Scott: I've deliberately never said.

Love the last panel!

Panel number three got me laughing out loud!

May 7, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterLong Time Lurker

This is one of your best -- I laughed at every panel!

Scott, your beard looks strange in panel four...

May 7, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterThom

The more times I re-read panel two, the funnier it got.

May 7, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterwlp

The third panel reigns again.

May 7, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterAl

Do you guys have one customer? Or do the rest don't bother to complain?

Does anybody else ever wonder what service Angry Client has actually paid for? It is clearly something he wants enough to keep enduring enormous frustration, but not something so urgent or important to take his business elsewhere. Or maybe he already HAS taken his business elsewhere, but is too stubborn to back down and admit defeat in the face of infinite incompetence?

AA, your explanation that he has taken his business elsewhere and is stubborn seems likely. It's also possible that Scott and Mullet Boss do something highly specialized.

@AA -
Obviously, the client's actions constitute the classic definition of insanity - doing the same thing over and over again with the hopeless expectation of receiving different results.

You just gotta love how Scott is slowly wearing down the angry client....

If it's like my company, the customer paid them before delivery as a good-will gesture so the company could post better quarterly numbers (which can be considered accounting fraud). Now that they have the customer's money that project is no longer high priority. The customer can't take them to court since they aided in accounting fraud.

@Splatmandeux payment in part or in full before delivery of services is a pretty standard business practice, from consumer level to business to business. It's not accounting fraud in the least, and even if it were fraud the customer couldn't possibly have anything to worry about - it's totally on the business how they run their books.
