RKNOLA, your "moral is" reminds me of a story. I was assistant manager at a pawn shop and this guy parked out front with an beat up pickup. He entered the shop wearing bib overalls. The shop owner had already made up his mind about this guy.
Well, I showed this guy some nice jewelry pieces for his wife's Christmas gifts. He asked if we could do better on prices if he bought several pieces. That triggered the owner's a fit of rage,and without further ado, the shop owner ordered him out of the store, never to return.
A few days later, the guy returned when the owner was out. The guy asked if I knew who he was. Yes I did. I knew he was a real estate investor worth millions. The guy said, I would have paid the price, but I thought I would ask. Your boss is a real jerk. The boss's wife (co-owner) smiled and nodded. He bought the jewelry and left.
