Jason Robie: Smarter than the average

By Jason Robie
Having bought and sold a couple properties in my day, I'm clearly the smartest man alive and everyone should listen to what I have to say. Now that we have that out of the way, the reality is, we can all learn something new every day. Did you know that the woman who sued McDonalds over the hot coffee was sitting in a parked car, not driving through the drive-through? Did you also know that she suffered third-degree burns on 16 percent of her body? The facts of that case got so buried in public opinion that the media hoodwinked us all. She actually asked for them only to cover her medical expenses ($11,000), but they refused and offered her a pittance of $800. (It should be noted that their gross coffee sales, at the time, were $1.3 million dollars a day!)

Jason Robie: I said you said

By Jason Robie
I'm not going to bore you with the details of my interpersonal life over the past three weeks, but suffice it to say there has been a bit of a communication breakdown. Communication, or the ability to express our thoughts into a manner in which another person (or being) can understand, is a vital skill to possess and practice — one that I don't believe many of us has or use today. I say that not to sound cynical or negative, but merely as an observation. You don't get to a divorce rate of 50 percent or more(not sure of the exact number) with lots of open, effective and honest communication.
