During the course of my life as independent software engineer I come across many different kinds of people. Or lets rather call them clients. Sometimes I get stupid requests. Sometimes the requests are so stupid they are Dork Award nominees. Such as this one I got today:
Would you be able to send me a test file so that XXX can test.
The context of this request was for a project which I have quoted on 3 months ago, have not yet received any kind of approval to start the development, yet now they want a test file to illustrate the typical transaction volume they can expect.
