No More Middle Man


When you're involved in a purchasing situation, and you see a way where you can go around the middle man and buy directly from the source, do you consider this to be greedy?

Nope. If the source is willing to sell to me, then it's no different than shopping around for the best price.

"It wasn't a bad idea, Wash, but
eliminating the middleman is never as
simple as it sounds.
'Bout 50% of the human race is
middlemen, and they don't take kindly
to being eliminated."
-Malcolm Reynolds (firefly)

I totally do it. And sleep well.
