It’s time for the Sunday Whirl hosted by Bwarren here
‘We can offer really good discounts in the beginning to attract business and in a year or so, we’ll both be rich.’
With a wink, he finished his spiel with the line
‘You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours,’ the oil sheen on his hair showing just how slimy a character he really was.
I didn’t trust him for a single minute, knowing any investment on my part would be far from in safe hands.
I ran a tight ship when it came to finances, the fear of bankruptcy seared into my brain from long before, so there was no way I was going to fall for his get rich quick patter, especially at my expense by putting up his much needed collateral.
There was a heated exchange between us and he left with a face set in granite having failed to tempt me to part with any money and my refusal to go into partnership with him.
