Client: Hey, I have a magazine I want to be turned into a website.
Me: Okay, is each page in the magazine going to be a page on the website?
Me: No problem. How many pages will the website consist of then?
Client: I don’t know, can’t you tell by looking at the magazine?
Me: I could but I don’t know how you want the content broken down.
Client: Can’t you just provide an estimate? I need to get something over to the client.
Me: Provide an estimate for what? We base the pricing on hours.
Client: …Okay, but aren’t your hours based on the number of pages?
