Sometimes people look down on me, sometimes they look up to me! Either way, why should I care, when I have my work to do, and my life to live. Sure the $$$.$$ are a big part of life, but it is not a contest, and if it is, then the guy who has the most fun wins. The guy with the most toys comes in second.
Look down on me all you want, but if a customer talks down to me, then they will be in the market for a new service provider, and no further words will be needed.
