We are all independent contractors, so we all may have different negotiation styles. I don’t think anyone would make you feel as uncomfortable as the examples you gave though! If you come in and know exactly what you want and for how long, and I give you a price that is outside of your budget I will almost certainly ask if you are willing to come up a certain amount. I do that, not to pressure you, but because I want to find the compromise on your budget that will get you as close to everything you wanted as possible. But if your budget is firm, I will still give you as long and as many activities as I can within that budget. And we will still have an amazing time. And I’m sure that’s true for all the ladies of the house!
