After 5 years of this malarkey, you would have thought I would be less
naive.
I guess I am just too sensitive for the cut and thrust of business.  Oh look
a fluffy kitten ..............

Rise above it Jon, I'm only too happy to say "let 'im do it then." If you
need somebody to whack a really high price in ring me up and I'll double
your
price.

Then if you want a really really high price; get them to ring Scotty.....

Also try "you want it when? 'Aven't you got someone else to ask? You want me
to drop everything and go and look at this job? You'd better be making it
worth my while" And if they want it over the weekend then arrange to meet
them on
site to discuss it, 8.00 AM Sunday morning is ideal; find out how determined
they are..... Tell em they're buying breakfast! Make sure they know what
life
is really like.

Bill.
