[OT] How to Have a Business Conversation
He ends with "You'd be amazed at how many people don't know any of these rules. If you do, you're way ahead of the game."
repeat: "ahead of the game"
smells arrogant to me. i always thought life is about real friendship, love and such things not calculating behaviour to be nice with anyone. shure if your grown up you also have not the greater need to upset anybody just to feel better, but you know man.... if i really honestly feel that a comment sucks i dont like it to hide in nice but dont ment words.
I always dislikes americans and other "wessis" or talk masters for the behaviour first to talk about how nice it is in idaho or where you come from. if your not completely stupid your see and feel what it is all for. and that really sets me up. when someone behaves like he thinks i'm stupid. Do you really want some good old handmade smacks, keep on talkin dude.
best comment here is dont waste time, even when i would rather say take attention as precious, because time ... thats another real big subject .......
have nice day :)
