When negotiations turn sour.......

IDIOT: No offence.........but I need to talk to the organ grinder and not the monkey.

HRD: (After a pause and a pretend phone call). Right I've spoken to the organ grinder and......"no offence".....they think you only warrant the monkey.

Yes, because the first thing they teach you in Negotiation School is that the best way to win is to insult the person across from you.

'm wondering where this person thought that this clever analogy was going to get him/her?

Great retort.

Idiot: Okay, I'll go speak to my members who create the organ grinders profits and the money to pay the monkey's wages and tell them we "only warrant the monkey".

@Sayya - Rise above it, that's my motto!
@class-factotum - Indeed, I think they went to a different school of negotiation to you and I!
@Corporate Daycare - It got them into my bad books, that's for sure.
@teresahrgirl - You win!
@Ministry of Truth - Welcome and thanks for your comment. Surely that doesn't grant people a license to be aggressive and impolite?

No, I agree that is no excuse for impoliteness or agressiveness.
