Something is worth what you pay for it.

Once, many years ago, I was talking with a department manager in a distribution centre where I worked about his labour costs. I told him that I had a few ideas on how to trim off a little fat.

He asked me what thoughts I had and I said that I held a belief that people value things, to a large degree, based on how much it cost them so he needed to pay me $5000 as a consultant and I would write my recommendations in a report. He balked at the idea and I explained that if I charged him $5000 then he would place that value on my advice, while if I merely told him he would place no value on my suggestions.

Was I out of line?
