Consulting for Dollars... or Chump Change?

So someone earlier this week offered me a consulting job at 80 bucks an
hour (pretax).

And more than one friend I've talked to since has said that that offer
was "Chump Change" -- that is, the person who made the offer to me shows
me that he thinks I'm a chump by lowballing me with such an inadequate
offering of what he thinks my time is worth.

Any of you overopininated folks agree or disagree with my friends'
"Chump Change" hypothesis? You can respond to me personally if you
don't want your opinions archived (with sour grapes)...
