More of a stupid colleague quote [you'll be hearing more of these from me, about the very same colleague]:

We're working on a identity manual for our client. Stupid Designer colleague calls me into a meeting, just the two of us.

Her: "OK, we've got this green colour, but I want a fresher green, more yellowy"
Me: *I point to a lighter green*
Her: "Yes, that's lighter, fresher. But this lighter fresher green is even more difficult to read. I want a darker green that can still be read when it's small"
Me: *I point at a darker green*
Her: "That's good. But now, it's too dark, it's not fresh anymore"
Me: *Point at the original colour that we started off with*
Her: "Yes, that's the original colour, and the problem is that I want a lighter fresher yellow"
Me: *Point to lighter green*
We go round and round in circles for a few minutes, before I explain to her that we're just going round and round and it's wasting my £%$£ing time.
Me: "WHAT DO YOU WANT? This colour's too dark, this colour's too light, and this one's not fresh enough!!!! "
Her: "I just want you to help me pick a green that's lighter AND darker at the same time"
