I do door to door marketing and was able to talk with a potential client about landscape design some time back. I've created a plan with CAD and other tools (compass, roller measurer, etc.) This may have been a mistake but I told him that the design itself would be free since it is my first one. The installation of course would be at full price. I've created the design for him and given him a complete bid document yet he still says things like "where is my senior discount?" and "I always want a cheaper price". Obviously he is on the cheapskate side of things but I'm not budging an inch. I only do favors for clientele that I can respect. He has two houses to boot. He told me that he would "think about it" which most likely means try to wait for me to call him and give him a cheaper price. I've already decided that I'm not going to call him back until he contacts me as the price is more than fair. I already get the impression from him that I don't need to explain myself. Any advice is appreciated. Also any similar stories are appreciated. It seems like we live in a nation of children that always want more for themselves. Children need to be disciplined. Maybe that sounds harsh but that's how I feel when dealing with such people.
