LOL ! Of course it's their mission in life - at one stage in his past my son used to sell them - he could tell you a few things about that industry - we all know that's their job, just the same as it's my OH's "mission in life" to sell more meat and veg at the farm shop and more paintings from his studio and my niece's 'mission in life' to sell more pigs to top class hotels and restaurants. It's what makes the world go round. I used to work in marketing (I've had a varied career ) and the world of the mobile phone seller is no different to the world of any other retailer and most organisations - the whole aim is to 'add value' whether we think we want it or not - hence bags full of ready shredded curly kale at the supermarkets which cost more per kilo than the whole leaves. In my view it is patronising to suggest that a lot of people don't understand that - to suggest that people may be defrauding their employer is, in my view, an insinuation - you say that I am entitled to my view - I'm glad that you agree with me on that point at least.
No one but you is taking anything personally - please don't take umbrage if I disagree with you - I'm sure it's not the first time you've come across someone who has a different view to you. I'm perfectly happy for you to disagree with me.
