[thelist] Customer requirements: simple?

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.
