Impress People With Details

I ran into Cheryl today at Starbucks today. A couple of weeks ago, I had helped setup her manufacturer-direct purchasing account.

No, I like to try and take them apart and examine the ways that these hucksters are trying to get my attention and pick my pocketbook. Some people are downright clever and inventive.
