Fortunately, this was a give-away job (about 0.25 - 1/3 my normal rates) even before I threw in free time to make her feel good. If she hadn't done such a good job at P***ING me off, I'd have just given her a discount and swallowed it.

What gets my goat is that I was such a poor judge of character.
