Wink Re: McDojo Fees

Well you are Da Enfoassa for a McDojo.

That's kind of like a salesman, right? (Okay, maybe not, but bear with me here...).

You know the old joke about how you tell if a salesman is lying?

Are your lips moving?

Re: McDojo Fees

My apologies to all customers at the Dory McDojo .... you may have heard rumours that I have been sunning myself on the beautiful beaches of barbados .... this is a VISCIOUS lie ... I have been doing EXTENSIVE research in to how to make our services better for all users. Of course I had to make this survey in barbados ... but it was all work and no play. ...

Dance your cares away .... worry for another day ... let the music play .... down in fraggle rock!

when bored ... do as I do. Poke a patient!

I'm pretty sure I bought a car from a guy who said much the same thing. A week later I got a call from the local police looking for the person who'd owned the car before me. Seems she was wanted for a few hundred dollars in check fraud.

Not that I'm saying you'd be guilty of such fraud...

...but...

...I've got one hand on my wallet during this discussion.

I assumed it was part of the planning for the Beach Training (TM) trip. All expenses paid (excluding air fare, lodging and food). But, if you don't mind my saying, the beaches in Hawaii might be a better choice.

Re: McDojo Fees

Emma, go there in a boat, that way his anti-aircraft rubber band launcher will have no effect.

My war advisors fee is the same as my McDojo mat fees, so are we even????

to show there is no bad feeliungs between the greater land of Britain and our american brothers and sister ... Dory' McDojo apologises that the dayglow belt has now been discontinued ... But as a means in compensation I will be sending you our latest belt with the new reflective band. You will of course have to pay for the postage and packing which stands at three hundred american dollars. I will dis[patch the belt persoanlly when the check clears.
kindest reguards

Do well placed explosives on your boat and an army of trained sharks frighten you? Do I need to call in my giant squid?
