True, true. It’s easy to get worked about the bad apples.
I went to a Rotary Club meeting where the guest speaker was the CFO of a local hospital. We peppered him with questions about the millions of dollars in care the hospital provides to uninsured ER walk-ins which is never reimbursed. No matter how much we tried to get him worked up about it, he cheerfully said that those losses were a normal part of the business of running a hospital, and the hospital was financially healthy.
I’ve lost $2-3k on dishonest buyers this year. I want to have the same reaction as that hosptial CFO, focusing on what I got to keep. I don’t always manage it, but I don’t want to be like some folks we meet here to let a $5 deal gone bad ruin their whole day.
