yeah sure. When I tell you that my budget is $2000 then why are you showing me things that would push the price above it? Its not like I was shown a book with prices in it. If I'm choosing a solution that is expensive it would be nice to be guided in a direction for something thats similar but less expensive.
I told Jimmy straight up that I knew nothing about blinds. We wanted something that looked nice and kept the sun out.
Since this is a tech forum I'll use this scenario
Grandma: hey TJ can u build me a computer?
TJ: Sure, what do you want/need?
Grandma: I don't know. I just want to read emails from my grandkids and shop QVC. My budget is $1000
TJ: Ok, here <shows proposal build> this computer is really nice and would do everything you need. Its $1500.
Grandma: wow, it is nice but its out of my budget. can you build it for $1000?
TJ: no, thats the price
Grandma: well, if I don't send you some b-day money and I cut out my monthly medication then I can do $1300.
TJ: F YOU GRANDMA! You're wasting my time!
How about something like this
TJ: Grandma, well lets see here. Maybe we can substitute this SSD for a slower 5400 hdd. Maybe you don't need a 27" monitor....how about a 21"?
Grandma: Well, I really like the SSD but maybe we can do a 7200/SSD hybrid drive. I think I can live with a 21" monitor. Lets go with that. How much is it?
TJ: We can do that for $1000!
