Thank you. I will.
I just looked into this more carefully and the report that you want me to refer to for the assignment is 166 pages! I am going to make you an offer for more credit for this assignment because this involves a lot of work. The final report also must be 15 to 20 pages! :-). I am not saying I cannot do it, but I really need more credit for it. I will make you an offer and please do not reject it. I can make you an offer that you can afford. All you would need to do is let me know.
Thank you for not rejecting my offer. You do understand that this would be on top of what you have already credited for the question? Please make sure that it is something that you can afford. I just want to ensure that you understand that. Once we have confirmed everything and you accept my offer, then I can start on your work to have it completed for you by Sunday morning.
OK. I will go ahead and make you the offer that you proposed. Once you accept I can get started on this to have it done by Sunday morning. It is going to be a lot of work.
Once you accept the offer I can proceed.
I offered 110.00. Will that be ok?
90 plus 110.00. That 200. No I can't afford that. ... the total charge can be made for a total 130.00.
OK. Here is my proposal. Once you accept I can proceed.
I.on my phoNE I can see the offer pop up are off can.u try a again
Yes. I will try again.
I cannot proceed with your assignment until you accept the offer. I would like to open your assignment up to other experts if you do not accept my offer based on what you can afford.

So would you like me to opt out of this question? Will you accept the offer? Please go ahead and accept it if you will.
I need to know what to do to either give myself or another expert time to work on your question. It would take some time to complete.
