When bad business deals go three for three

At times I have been drawn into business arrangements that cost me some money - more as opportunity cost than anything else. But the real sting is in the bad faith of the negotiation.

I'll never say the words directly, but they would be:

"There are three things I dislike in business:
  • When my loyalty is taken for granted
  • When promises arent honoured
  • When other people's dithering costs me money

And with this deal you have gone 3 for 3."

But everybody knows how I hate confrontation (cough) so I never say those things.
