Caller: Hi, my neighbor said you’re a great lawyer.
Me: Thanks. Please send my regards.
Caller: I’m selling my house and I’d like to hire you. [My neighbor] said you charged him $~~~~ two years ago.
Me: Yes, that’s still my fee.
Caller: Oh. I was wondering, since my house is worth about $65,000 less than two years ago, could you cut your fee in half?
Me: Sorry, I cannot afford to do that.
Caller: Well, do you know anyone as good that charges less?
Me (only in my head): $#%!&^*%
