Me: I accept payment in euros.
Client: But I live in America. I only have dollars!
Me: That’s okay. The bank will convert dollars to euros no problem.
Client: Are you sure I can just send you dollars? Don’t you live in Europe? You won’t be able to use them.
Me: Tell you what. I’m heading to New York later this year. Pay me in dollars and I’ll spend them then.
Client: Oh, phew! I’m glad that’ll work out.
Sometimes it’s easier to lie than explain the truth.
