Pardon me for chiming in here. When a client tells me that about a 3  
hour estimate, flags go up. You know this already, but if you let them  
bully you, whether intentionally or not, they will expect all sorts of  
things. Stand your ground in that special way, that conveys 'Im the  
professional here and you aren't' with kindness.
