Client: My boss says he wants this completed. Can you assist?
Me: No problem! When will this need to be completed by?
Client: I’m just waiting for you to give me a killer deal.
Me: I can do this for £XXX.
Client: A little more than the budget can handle right now – give me 24 hours and if things change I will get back to you.
Me: How much is your budget for this project?
Client: No budget – just trying to get the best possible killer deal.
