My name came up when the employing manager said, in exasperation, "Ok, so who's NOT going to try to negotiate?" The senior Brit involved blurted out (his words) my name, and before he could retract it the point of no return had passed.

Of course I was unaware of that when I accepted their (very generous at my age then) offer, but said Brit pointedly told me on my first day. And was frosty for the first year. But I stayed for over 6 years, had a retainer afterwards for several years, then worked for them again. Said Brit and I are now bosom buddies.

Not first choice? So what?
That's good, and sort of my point. Doesn't matter does it.

You'd be amazed at how many people have the opposite reaction though.

Wasn't there a similar situation when SCW took over the England rugby team?
