Man to attractive Woman:
Would you sleep with me for $1 million?
How about for $100?
No, what do you think I am?
I thought that we had already established what you are and that we could start to discuss the price.
Maybe I’m the one who just doesn’t get it.
Business Week has an article on Tech’s Kickback Culture this week. I just don’t understand how someone could accept Friends and Family stock in an IPO, flip it for a quick profit of $40,000, and not see a conflict of interest (the person in question said that $40,000 was not enough to sway his judgement). I don’t know about you, but I would want to know about that Friends and Family deal every time he recommended the company’s software.
