Lesson of the day

Today’s lesson learned:

Don’t threaten to go over a middle man’s head when the middle man has already paid off the man over his head.

And on a side note:

Don’t allow a middle man to negotiate for you if he earns more based on how little he negotiates for you.

We’ll be sure to keep these points in mind for all of our future business arrangements. Right now, however, we’re chalking it all up to a ‘learning experience.’ Chinese business has some distinct differences from how we’re used to things. Enough said!

    Sounds like Italy from Rome south to me.
