The big one for me:
A lady asked me to make her a cake and sent me a pic. It was a 4 tier Chanel cake complete with shoe, edible images, gold luster and incredibly beautiful and intricate. I emailed her back and said that the cake she sent me was worth $2000 or more but I would do it for $500 because I am just getting started in the business and the cake was worth putting in my portfolio even if I didn't get full price for it.
She said that was a lot more than she wanted to spend. I told her I could do a 3 tier for $400 but that I estimated 15 hours of work on it so I couldn't go lower than that. She said that she wanted to spend $50. My jaw DROPPED!!! yeah, she didn't get the cake from me.
Jeez, it's like "Hey, I want to buy a Ferrari but I only have enough for a Kia. That's cool, right?" Sheesh!
