well don't pay for 9 words then, just pay the basic charge for 1 to 8 words.
It still takes me 20 to 30 minutes to do the job even if it's only two letters. I have to draw the graphic, compile the report, make it all into a pdf file and email it to you. At US$8.95 for the job that's a rate of $18 to $27 an hour. How many professionals do you know that work for as little as that?
