Client: Let’s get a quote for making, say, a million of these.

Me: Um… do you really think you’ll need a million?

Client: Nope, but it would be fun to see how much it would cost, don’t you think?

I send the client the quote.

Client: Great! So, making 1000 of these would cost (the quote divided by 1000)

Me: No, I’m afraid we give bigger discounts the bigger the bulk order.

Client: That why did you give me the original quote?

 

Editor’s Note: For fun, I guess.
