Feeling of shame

Sometimes I would offer something for sale for, say, $5, but communicated with the client through a salesperson, and the salesperson would come back with an “improvement”, of $5.10.

Something never felt right about the extra ten cents.

It was, simply, not a sustainable way of doing business. What if the customer subsequently discovered that my initial offer was $5?

No compensation is worth the feeling of shame.
