    I am a psychologist who used to treat worriers. When a person articulates that they would consider a best offer, they have not set any time limits so they might be willing to wait a decade for the "best offer".

    Kitcat, funny story about a continuing education program I attended many years ago from a psychologist/lawyer who was comfortable wearing both hats. He suggested that lawyers view conflicts as emanating from the client's opposition and so blame them whereas a psychologist suggests to the client that they consider modifying their own behavior. I suspect that the presenter had some cogent insights into the differences in conflict resolution.

    Come on Astro Bob - I have 50+ lawyers on my payroll and I am the one who needs a psychotherapist for exactly the type of indecisive multi-layered ill thought logic Kitcat demonstrated. Only HR flunkey are worse.

    With all apologies to Gordon for messing with his ad for a really nice looking Birkin - I like the two tone look. Good spec and very competitively priced even with the work required.

    Thanks everyone! I had no idea "OBO" could generate such a lively discussion! But, then again, I'm just an engineer - not a lawyer (sorry - couldn't help stirring the pot further)
