Sorry to use this medium to express my innermost thoughts about the kind of week I have had. As I sit here with a glass of my Argentinian Chardonnay, let us call it therapy!
For obvious reasons, I cannot go into any details. However, I say this: If someone ask you to give up what is rightfully yours, he damn well must be willing to negotiate and compromise! If, however, he uses his position to get his way, then he might loose something greater in the process.
This is Pyrrhic victory...he won the battle but lost the war...alas, not my kind of victory.
