"Your time is limited so don't waste it living someone else's life.
Don't be trapped by Dogma which is living with the results of other people's thinking.
Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your inner voice.
And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become."

Madonna

Arse, I missed out on getting some Madonna tiks for her UK tour dates. And now they're on eBay for an average price of FOUR HUNDRED BLOODY QUID. Can someone PLEASE ban this practice of ripping people off for such filthy profits?!?!?!

On another random note, I have a double glazing salesman coming round today and I'm quite nervous - have been reading scare stories about how aggressive they are and how they pretty much bully you into signing up there and then. Blagger.com has some horrendous stories about Zenith Windows, so I'm giving them a miss, and my friend who actually runs his own DG company up North, says they WILL bully me. Aaargh!

Maybe if I sit there with my big squishy black rat on my shoulder he may be sufficiently scared into submission .....

When dealing with an aggresive sales person, the best thing that you can do is to get aggresive yourself. Too many times people just buckle under the in-built English need to remain polite when what they need to do is allow themselves the idignant rage that everyone is capable of when someone starts taking the piss. Be firm and look him straight in the eye and tell him to leave when you've had enough. Do not ask him to leave, do not tell him that "you think" that it's time he left. Tell him "Thank you for your time, but you're leaving now."

Chances are he'll be so unaccustomed to such an attitude that he will be rather stunned and will actually leave.
