Architects, Laywers and Prostitutes

I read this on Jamila’s blog and i just had to post about it:

Whenever you see the word ‘Client’ in something to do with building, you know there just has to be an architect involved because no one else in the building game ever refers to anyone as ‘clients’. It is such a strange word, isn’t it? In a shop you are a customer, on a train you are a passenger, in a hospital you are a patient, in a class you are a student, in the economy at large you’d be a consumer. But client? The only people who have clients are lawyers, architects and prostitutes, all of whom have to live with the reputation that they are simply out to screw you. Only the prostitute is honest about it.

Hmmm i never thought about that makes you wonder, how did those word come about…

    And as a lawyer, may I say that I’ve enjoyed your site. Thanks for adding me to your blogroll.

    I’m just glad I’m not a doctor, because I have no patience.

    Now, no lawyer jokes, please. 🙂
