A client I’ve worked with before asked me about performing a service I’ve done for them several times.

Client: How much would it be for you to do it? I don’t want to spend much.

Me: That would cost $X, which also includes services Y and Z.

Client: That’s too expensive! I don’t need Y and Z.

Me: The service you’re asking for really kind of requires that other support, which is why we charge for them as a bundle. 

Client: I have spoken directly to your subcontractor who says they can do the basic service without the extras for cheaper.

Me: I really wouldn’t advise that. 

Client: Just do it.

Two week later:

Me: The subcontractor has sent their invoice but it is for the the full amount ($X). Since you spoke directly to them, I wanted to check if anything changed.

Client: Just pay it! I’m too busy to worry about that now.

I paid the full amount, but didn’t ask any further questions. 

Client: Why didn’t Y happen? Why isn’t Z happening? We need to get on this immediately!

Me: *bangs head on desk*
