How do people react to your STR pricing?

I've got a 14 unit residential apartment complex with a billboard out front.  "Furnished apartments, all bills paid, weekly rate".  I get calls from people that are looking for a LTR, and that's what they think these are.  I tell them $500 a week.  

Sometimes the line goes dead.

Sometimes they ask me if I'm high or what I'm smoking.

Sometimes they say "You are rolling in the dough, now I understand what your places are for."

Today someone called me with their phone on speaker.  I said $500.  I heard someone in the background say "Oh my God!"
