Well...

We recently sent our client an update for the mockups of a new website we're about to start developing, in the form of a zip containing a couple of jpeg images (actually the images were mockups for the custom 404 and 500 error pages). So far so good.

Minutes later, our PM got an angry call from the client. Here's how it roughly went down:

[Client]: Hey, the mockups you sent over are not working at all. All I'm getting is errors!
[PM]: What do you mean, that the zip file is corrupt? That you can't open the images?
[Client]: No, the zip is not corrupt, and I can "open" the files, but when I do, I get an error! Fix it NOW!
[PM]: Ok... What kind of error?
[Client]: I get a 404 error on one image and a 500 error on the other. I said, FIX IT NOW!!!
[PM]: hm, you do realize that you're seeing the MOCKUPS for the CUSTOM ERROR pages, right? That you're supposed to see an IMAGE displaying an ERROR. Right?
[Client]:...
Φευ! Εδόμεθα υπό ρηννοσχήμων λύκων!
(Alas! We're devoured by lamb-guised wolves!)
