I teach art to kids, and also do illustrations and sell original art. A father of one of my students, noticed some of my artwork one day when picking up his kid.
Client: Oh, you paint!
No sh*t, Sherlock. I teach your daughter painting.
Me: (forcing a smile) Well, that’s why I’m here!
Client: Are any of these for sale?
Me: Yeah, these two here, They’re [X] apiece.
Client: Hm. I’ll give you [1/10th of X] for both.
