Client: I know you said 10 days, but I need it ready for print by the end of the week.

Me: I might be able to squeeze it in if I work late a few nights, but I can’t promise anything. It’s a big job.

Client: Thanks, that’s very professional of you.

Me: No problem.

Client: And because you’re so professional, I expect a 50% discount since it will only take you half the time.
