Along the same lines - a question?

now you could of done better do you give them a discount. I
mean I know you have to break even for time and henna itself,
but I think that if I freaked out (which is very possible - since I
don't do it for money now for this very reason) that I would politely
apologize that in my opinion that my work was not up to snuff
and give them a good discount.
It's great that we learn from our experiences, but if we are doing
this for money shouldn't we have some gaurentee. For example
if you go to a restaurant and the cheif is having a bad day and
your food tastes bad wouldn't you expect atleast a discount from
the manager. For me a discount would help with the guilt, but I
would still have some internal searching to do to figure out why I
felt like I did.
