Alternative Payments

Client (after telling me the idea for the website): How much will that cost?

Me: Well, you’ve given me a lot of info. I’d like to organize all of these ideas and get back to you with an appropriate quote.

Client: I’d like to get it going as soon as possible. How’s $250?

Me: Uh… that’s a little low. I’d feel more comfortable just giving you an official quote and we can see if we can work out a payment plan.

Client: Alright, how about this. I’ll give you the $250 for this project and this other project I have. It’s a porn site for this 70-year-old woman. $250 for both sites AND 15% of the profits from that site.

Me: (speechless)

Client: And I’ll blow you.
