That's an old joke,you laugh but when I was building houses I HAD that conversation with a Doctor had to do with charging mileage to the job.He said"I'm a Dr and I don't get mileage" to which I replied "You need to have a talk with your accountant then".When I was building houses I had a Dr. call be about building him a deck. I priced the job at 12,450.00, he said go for it. Myself and a helper were there for four hours and the deck was built.
The Doc came home to see us packing our tools, surprised that we were finished, he asked how long we worked on it. I proudly told him it took four hours. He said dammit man!!!! I'm a Dr. and don't make that kind of money!!!!! I calmly explained to him that I didn't make that kind of money when I was a Dr. either.
