Ugh, these people are amateurs.
The production company will be back next week to film more of the reality tv show taking place on this island.
They reached out to us to cater lunches for their crew (again). I'm dealing with a new contact, who is aggressively trying to negotiate the price. I don't know how many more ways I can say, "No."
The prices I have presented to her were negotiated last time around. I am at bottom barrel. There is no more reduction. She was given an option of 3 packages. The package she likes most is out of their budget. Oh well. I even threw in cookies with no price increase even though it will cost me more.
She is insisting we meet for coffee tomorrow to "really talk things out."
ETA: And her negotiation skills are really lacking. She needs to learn how to bluff
