That's a good one for that, and what I often try to do when
somebody's budget isn't in line with my reality. OFtentimes though it's handled over the phone, because they call me to
"kick tires" and usually I ask first what kind of budget
they have for services such as I offer.

What gets me are the guys who want to record the $250 demo
from either the gig or in their garage. When I tell them
that within 100 miles of me it's a flat day rate of $1200 to even talk about it. the conversation usually ends right there <g>.
