I notice it is a young kid, holding a manila folder with about 4 white papers in the folder.
He asks me if I can help him program a game he designed. He said he designed it for a class project. He said it has to be done in Java or Flash. I immediately said, we do not code games, I am sorry. So he left.
There are a few things wrong with this:
(1) Why come to my office to ask us if we would do a project for you? Why not call first? Gas is expensive!
(2) I look at him and he says he is a college student, I immediately think there is no money involved or little money involved. Don’t start off your sales pitch (or reverse sales pitch) with saying your from college.
(3) We do not do people’s home work! Although he did not word it that way.
