So I make fan signs for people. They are custom made and take a lot of time. This particular client was being stubborn about the price I offered.
Me: OK, so the total is going to be $60 for what you ordered.
Client: What? that’s so expensive!
Me: I told you what my prices were when we started.
Client: Come on can’t you give me a discount? I have 5K followers and I can advertise for you
Me: I already have a deal with someone else to advertise for me. You can get a discount if you buy 3 or more items.
Client: But I already spent all the money I had on the last fan sign I bought from you!
Me: Then I’m sorry I really can’t help you.
Client: Come on I won’t tell anybody if you give it to me for free
Me: For free? I never give anything away for free. These things are custom made and they take me a lot of time to do.
Client: Please, babe?
The client then tried to flirt with me to try and get me to give it to him for free or discounted. He then gave up and refused to talk to me about the sign he wanted. I’ll give him one thing, he was persistent. I won’t give him anything else, though.
