If you've been a photographer even for a few months, you are abundantly aware of the absurdity of client arguments about lowering your rates. You roll your eyes, scream after hanging up the phone, or otherwise express (rightfully so) indigniation about the demands for less now, with a promise of more later.

It's only two minutes, but after about the first minute, the message is loud and clear, and the remaining minute is just gravvy.
