It has taken me 61 years to realise: I’m an idiot. Up to now, I’ve always been a generous tipper. If the hotel doorman hailed me a taxi he’d get a couple of quid. If the concierge sorted me a good table – a fiver. When I left, I incredibly even tipped the cloakroom lady for not losing my jacket.
The vast majority of people that I meet are not bad negotiators. The vast majority of businesspersons l meet are also not that bad at negotiations either. So both groups are “not bad”.,,,,,,,For “not bad” read, bloody awful!
