truth in advertising

In a world filled with pleasantries masked as caring, half-truths designed to save feelings, smiles that hide pain, and people who ask, “how are you”, without expecting an actual answer to the question, I found perhaps the most honest street vendor in the world.

I was in a Turkish market, looking for a steam bath. I was tempted to buy something from him, because the honesty in his display was so refreshing.

your message so clear
easing suspicions and doubts
making way for truth

Get moving…

    I am not very good at those pleasantries…I don’t ask people how they are unless I want to hear the answer. I am polite but I an often a little too blunt. People who know me are used to it, but it sometimes comes as a shock to people who don’t know me…I never mean things rudely…but I sometimes get it wrong…

  2. I love this picture, and your story to go with it. Honesty is definitely the best policy. 🙂 I’ve worked in sales for a loooong time and people always respond better to polite, humorous, honesty than to deception of any kind.

  3. Beautiful, truthful, brevity. Well said, well done, and (oh hell, I can’t think of another “well something” that doesn’t come off as cheesy)…and you rock. Together in truth and sincerity,

    • Originally I thought about taking the easy way out and writing a funny post, snarking about the ridiculousness of “genuine fake watches”. And then something told me to look at it from another perspective. I’m glad I did. Thanks for confirming I did the right thing.
