Penny For Your Thoughts But Not Your Services – IMRAN™

…there will always be unappreciative and ungrateful clients in every field….

Some photographer posted in a FaceBook group about a model hurting their feelings by saying the photos they took (including location, hair, makeup) weren’t worth more than $10 each. I think a dozen people commented on that post. 

As I clicked to post my response on the original post it disappeared. Maybe the original poster deleted their post. I’m just sharing my “comment” here for everyone, as there will always be unappreciative and ungrateful clients in every field. 

I wrote: “Most people do not appreciate intangible expertise or subtle specialization or soft services nor put real monetary value on it. 

They’ll pay a plumber $200 for fixing a $100 leaky toilet but will have a heart attack paying $300 for cloud & technology or management consulting advice they hit you up for regarding their million dollar business.  

I haven’t seen the work the original poster did but assuming it was well done I’d say, go with the attitude, “Yes, the photos were worth just $10 each because the ungrateful model wasn’t worth more. 😋

Finally, Rolls On A Roll That I Want A Piece Of – IMRAN™

Who wants to come for a test drive?

I’ll be honest, though my Dad loved British cars in Pakistan, until he finally got used to the reliability and quality of Honda vehicles, but I have never been a fan of them.

I never liked the classic Rolls-Royce Motor Cars regardless of how much class they were supposed to exude. I disliked them even more when BMW bought the RR brand and made them into brutish, more monstrous than sophisticated, tanks, which, in recent years were being sold in such ugly garish colors that only a hoodlum rapper on LSD (does THAT drug even exist anymore, or was that taken over by some other company too LOL) and a love of shiny disco balls would love.

But, seeing this newest model, I have to say, when I am ready for 4-5 luxury cars, I would consider having this particular model among a Mercedes Maybach / S600/ S65 AMG, Ferrari, Lamborghini, and possibly one of those Danish supercars.

Though I am not a fan of the rear-swinging doors, this is a great photo and color scheme.

Another update another set of news items saying: “Apple working on a fix for iPad Pros bricked by iOS 9.3.2” or some other device bricked by yet one more of its glitchy device destroying updates
