Money over Mouth

If you’re asking someone to do something for you — even if it’s just answering a question — it’s healthy to at least give some consideration to what that service is worth.

Respect that people need to make money. When you use their time — especially where it relates to their profession — it costs them money to help you.

Pay them. Do something for them. At least know that you owe them.

Saying “thanks” to the sales person who explains how it all works to you isn’t helping them. It’s nice. Cordial. But that’s still for you, to make you feel better. It does nothing for the other person.

Put your money where your mouth is. Paying drives home what things are really worth.
