how to respond to “what’s in it for me”?

I asked a relatively new contact for a small favor and she replied through e-mail “what’s in it for me?” How should I respond in a non-threatening, clever way?

    The satisfaction of helping me and knowing that I would feel really grateful for your kindness.

    If this person is close enough to ask a favor, why should there be some kind of payoff? That doesn’t sound much like him/her doing you a favor, more like a condition of doing something nice…

    Maybe you should ask someone else…

    Just the way I see it…

    Good luck!

    That’s a pretty ignorant reply. Depends on what you asked for. I hope you aren’t stuck putting up with this person.

    that usually means they want sex.

    tell her you’d return the favor but you’re in a relationship.
