When I have to daily explain to people that just because our company is leasing their land that we are not going to "come in with our bags of money and politicians and take it away"... some people are just not that smart. also when I work hard hours to produce a lease for someone, get a check ready, and travel out to get a signature all of the sudden they want more money or refuse to sign it. The people I am dealing with are in very low income areas and usually own about .12 of an acre of land but want to try and negotiate with me like they are a big rancher. When someone comes to your house and you are clearly struggling with money with a $2000 check and promise of royalties, you should take it. Because if you tick us off and prices go down, next time when you are ready your check will have shrunk to less than 1000 and you are going to cry about it. Greed ticks me off... Thanks for the rant.
