I hear ya.
1 out of every thousand clients pays what he/she should, but the market is so bad they actually think we're ripping them off. lol... b.s.
If someone came into this industry and advertised $1 cuts then went out of business - clients would think we're ripping them off if we (heaven forbid) charged $2 per cut.
Then we have these a-holes who think they're doing us a huge favor, and think that we should kiss their arse for their lousy money. The majority of the time, if a client wants to start complaining my first reaction is to say "Ok. Go find someone else
PLEASE, find someone else!!!" instead of even attempting to make a situation between me and a client better.
Maybe I'm going a little nuts (HA, I already was nuts - almost had you fooled).
