I do however wonder who started the affront. If you want to be spoken to politely and decently, you should watch what you say.
much money you actually have, no?
Therefore, so what if Coutts is not good enough for you as a status symbol, the affluent British public cannot be wrong.
I mean if someone wanted to purchase 10 tons of iron ore, but only wanted to pay in either gold bouillon or diamonds, would that not seem a bit odd (at least from a business standpoint)?
Yeah, perhaps you ought to learn some etiquette when speaking to someone of such stature; NOBODY would ever say such a thing to me, in such an acerbic tone in person, so why would I invite you to do so. When people speak to me, I am used to receiving the utmost respect, so why should I take it from someone like you. I can just imagine the headlines, student tries to teach Mittal how to do buisness. You may well see this as arrogance, but I bloody well deserve to be arrogant.
Perhaps if I use something from the Bhagavad-Gita instead?
Now that is just going too far, if there is indeed such a thing as God (which I choose to believe). What was he doing in the interim period between the beginning of time and Jesus? Did he suddenly wake up in 0AD? Your religion (Christianity) suggests this. At least not that Hinduism has been around since the beginning of recorded time. Why do make such idiosyncratic comments, and still expect me to be polite to you.
When did I say that America was the only country in the world? On the contrary my argument was quite international, especially by bringing three different continents and one less than used credit interchange (in America) into the discussion.
Obviously, your brain cannot stretch to even realise what you said yourself, note that you are of the opinion that wealthy people would pay with a credit card. This in any other part of the world would suggest that you could not afford the items, and want to pay for them when they can (in the case of AMEX this may well be at the end of the month, but it is still after the event). In the vast majority of places (excluding of course America) it is regarded as low class to borrow money (on a personal level, not a business level, ALL successful businesses have/have had loans). Therefore, you are only considering the American view. Moreover, you were not ready to accept it until others re-instated my views.
Whatever respect you might have retained was finally lost here. Â BTW, your welcome.
Rider, please do realise that being excessively patriotic is regarded as a mental streak in most countries. Of course, America is the exception to this because everyone is insecure of his or her background ET cetera.
