My nice way of turning down clients who I am sure will be a PIA after that first 10 minutes is to give them a really high price for my work, and hope they look for a cheaper alternative. Or, the worst case scenario is not SO bad, at least I get paid a decent amount to deal with these headaches. It's amazing how soothing money can be.
