Client: If I promise to pay you extra for the new job can we talk about it now?

DrunkExPatWriter: No. We can talk about it after you've paid me for the old job.

Client: I will do everything in my power to pay you for the old job tomorrow.

DrunkExPatWriter: I will gladly pay you Thursday for a hamburger today.

Client: We really need you for this job.

DrunkExPatWriter: Then you will find a way to pay me for the old job before we say a word about the new job and you will pay me double up front for the new job.
