Respectfully, when I was doing this professionally I didn't not permit
any abuse regardless of $$. I've hung up the phone, turned and walked
away many times. I made a *very* decent living in spite of this. I
didn't want and did not retain customers that thought their $$ bought
them rights to abuse.

It is a mutual respect issue that is not modified by $$.

I do my best to give basic respect regardless of $$. More and less is
then earned by the individuals involved.
