Picture this. A potential client wants me to proofread 5,000 words.
My gig clearly states I charge $10 per 1,000 words. It’s a fair price.
The client asks “how much will the job cost?”. I reply “$50”.
Client responds “but I don’t want to pay $50”, and adds “others have quoted me $20”.
I say “then work with one of the others”. Client replies “but I want to work with you”.
So I say, “then I will charge you $50”. Client says “no, I don’t want to pay that”.
By this point I lose the will to live and just reply “no”.
Why are some people so mean? They knew from my gig description what the cost would be.
Buyers, please understand that not all sellers are desperate for work at any price.
Just had to rant.
