Anyone else avoid old people when taking IT projects?

Just like the title says!

Anyone else avoid old people when taking IT projects?

Postby CE_ClueBat » Sat Feb 18, 2012 9:14 am

Unless it's my grandma, I don't want to deal with old people. There is an Elance project up from an old lady who wrote some "phplist" (whatever that is) and wants someone to integrate it into her website and train her on how to use it with SEO. She says she knows HTML. Yeah, I'll pass.

Noooo!!! Don't do it! They'll rape your ears with dumb!

Seriously, I had a website I did for an old man, and his slightly younger buddy. Oh. My. Fuck. So needy. These are also the people who call customer service where I work and have no idea what a PDF is or how to get to the site they just bought shit from. Total fail. :roll:

Some old people are actually pretty decent to work with. They tend to pay well and give lots of praise for even the most basic stuff.

Then again, some are really needy and annoying as fuck to deal with. I can usually spot this a mile away...so I won't bother putting in a proposal.

So yeah, it's a mixed bag, I guess.

You just can't tell from things like age, gender, occupation. Not even education, really.

Yes, you have to figure out the code for your own business. The only thing I can go by is, if they're in a big hurry, they're only window-shopping. I don't know why it is, but the more eager they are, and the more urgent -- forget it. Even that theory -- one time it was genuine. One time. So it's not a foolproof theory.
