Nobody has any money these days. Sounds legitimate to me:)

Lawyers, at least during trials, generally ask questions. They make arguments of law, but they don't present direct evidence. My first job as a lawyer was in Worker's Comp, and the managing partner (who, coincidentally, is a magician (Magic Castle member)), used to say that he found it really curious (and annoying) that lawyers got a rep for being shady, while doctors are generally extremely well-respected, yet in all of our cases, it was the doctors giving the testimony that swung the cases is one of the practice areas that fosters some of the most cynicism about the legal profession.

That is a very good point.

Some of my worst experiences have come from interactions with Time Share salespersons.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

OOOOOOH. Time share salesmen. Got to calm down. Got to lower blood pressure.


Think nice thoughts.

I know the feeling Chessmann.
We take the bait, then we try to be nice,
not be rude and say, you a big fat liar.

I guess that’s what we get for trusting
them in the first place. Smile

I am currently putting together a study to find out which profession are the best liars! (not the biggest, or the worst, or the most unethical but the BEST!)

http://honestconman.blogspot.com/2008/07......ime.html for more information.

Which profession do you think are the best at lying?


Well, maybe they're not the BEST at lying, but the most amusing are the many posters here who say they're professional performers.

I had a very simple formula...#1. Don't lie. #2. Dispell Misconceptions. #3. Ask for the deal.

#2 calls for Knowledge not creativity. Commisioned salespeople who 'Chase' the deal rarely succeeed.





Great thought process Doug. I like it.
