My answer to What is the cheapest thing you've seen a mega-rich person do?

Answer by Desmond Last:

As the owner and Boat Broker of Sydney Boat Sales I had agreed to meet the owner of the 38′ Bayliner I had sold for him. He wanted to meet me on board the Bayliner as he had some personal effects to remove and I had a cheque for $145,000 to hand over to him.

He was a very rich Property developer with a multi-million dollar Sydney water-side property. I had got him a good price for the Bayliner and was looking forward to a quick meeting and then home. When I boarded the boat I was amazed to see him removing all the life-jackets.

New they are about $30 each. His were used and worth about $10 each.

Then it began. I had to be polite but firm. In reality I wanted to tell him what a cheapskate he was after I had thrown him overboard. He insisted that he was entitled to take them as they were not part of the boat.

Finally I had to play my trump card. “Right then” I said. “This is your cheque. I am going to tear it up. Then you can spend the next six months finding another buyer”. Out came his smooth talk and a back-down . He left the life jackets and I gave him the cheque.

Why is it the more money they have the greedier they become?

My work includes an outline of my New Perspective on Counter Terrorism. I have also written about and warned Governments on the developing threat from the use of Bio-Technologies (Brain2Computer) and Energy Weapons being used by Criminal and Terrorist Organisations. I have developed a reform of the United Nations and written a New System for Climate Change Policy and Disaster Management. My New System of Economics does not support Aid to end Third World Poverty instead it utilizes economic empowerment of Communities to do so. I seek freedom through a Bill of Rights for Creatures Gr8 & Small. Prime Minister Theresa May, the CIA and MI5/6 have never acknowledged my writing neither have the BBC, CCN and any Australian Media.
