Back ground: I sent this lady a job quote for 2 sections of 4' Galvanized Chain Link and....

Is that for just the back and the small side yard? We are looking for a whole lot cheaper price than that, we could buy wood privacy fence and do it ourself cheaper than the bid that you gave me. Let me know thanks Lisa

I think we have all heard it. But this should go in the off-topic section. Maybe even "Things I Hate"

We might as well talk about something productive, like how you could change a few words and improve this message.

It's extremely frustrating to deal with Customers that believe that can get everything cheaper. Even worse are the one's that have done their own "research" and think the labor end of things is no biggie, a cinch even. The fact that she even emailed you back tells me your still in the running, or at least on their radar. I would ask Her where did she expect pricing to be at, what's fair to her? This, to at least see if the deals salvageable and that maybe "Way off" to her is only a couple hundred bucks.
