Hi Guys! I have always wanted to start a response page for the typical questions and rude comments we all get as professional harpists.
Now, I would like to put any type of “explanation” out of the responses – like the ones we feel we have to do to justify our services – price of harp/lessons/strings/mobility/professionalism etc – so I’m looking for witty and smart replies without being rude and without going into everything a harpist has to do /has done / will do – that substantiates our fee.
So go ahead and start listing your favourite replies (ones that you would say to a client over the phone and not feel that you were rude)
“WOW! That’s expensive” they say,……. when you tell them your fee
I really need a good one that I can live with. I’m tired of trying to explain the polite way – I really can’t bother any more because they’re not hiring you anyway, or even if they are I don’t want to explain it any more, but I have difficulty being rude to any one at any time or simply just finishing the convo and hanging up the phone- so something smart and intelligent without being rude!
