Sorry to hear of your troubles. Don't let the customers get to you, especially this early in the season. Yes, be firm, and polite as possible.

If you start giving them breaks now they will EXPECT them in the future. Be firm, tell them your price & don't let them talk you down. Work for what your worth.
