Do you do business with someone who uses the following expressions:

“… I have been summoned…”

“… I have been mandated…”

Do you do business with such a person? No, because that is the the language of a lackey.

While this may be nothing more than a grubby negotiating tactic, to claim to have to pass all decisions by a higher power, chances are such a person is merely buying time and is devoid of sincerity.

In other words, he or she would be, what we call in South Africa, a chancer!
