I loved the following story, from Harvey Mackay’s blog, it reminds us to be careful of people who make easy ‘commitments’:

Several men are in a golf club locker room when a cell phone rings. A man answers the phone. “Yes, I’m finished with my game so I can talk. You’re out shopping? And you want to order those new carpets? Okay … and they’ll include the curtains for an extra five thousand? Sure, why not?” The golf buddies start to laugh. “You want to book that week-long cruise? They’ll hold the price at twelve thousand? Sounds good to me. How about two weeks? If that’s what you want, okay by me.” The buddies start to wonder where he’s been hiding the money. He continues: “And you want to give the builder the go-ahead for the house addition? Seventy-five thousand if we say yes today? Sounds fair — sure, that’s fine.” Glances of amazement all around. “Okay, see you later. Yes, love you too,” says the man, ending the call. He looks at the other men and says, “Whose phone is this anyhow?”
