When someone asks you how much to install a window why can't you be honest enough to give a flat price for doing it correctly instead of juggling numbers in there face with a wide open caveat to stuff your pocket with more bucks.
Don't bother answering any of my posts or replys, I'm only interested in honest people making a honest price. Now you just go right ahead and blow off all the steam you want at me because you are trying to justify 1.5 hours work at the most with stupid price analogies. I feel sorry for your customers.

I don't want to tread into this mess, except to say that our contractor was watching the large McMansion being built next door and noted that all the windows were installed in one day. Perhaps the home owner thought that was great and speedy, but our contractor couldn't believe all the things they didn't do -- like checking to see if the windows were level and plumb.

(Their gutter guys were equally as speed -- the gutters leaked all winter and caused ice damning!)

Anyway, quality installation is important -- so always consider that with any attempts to be cost conscious!
