    I've sat through two timeshare presentations (on rainy days).
    Both years I scored a free weeks holiday which we actually used.
    One was a poolside room on Beach rd plus breakfasts.

    The trick is to keep nodding and saying "Yes" then at the crunch say "NO!" and demand tour prize.

    Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!

    I've never done it but I'd have no problem saying no when needed

    A friend of mine got suckered in by one in Phuket a few years ago and I ended up going with him. Luckily he said no, but the guys peddling the timeshares were these rough and rugged English blokes who would probably have been small to medium level criminals back home before they moved to Thailand, and were quite intimidating. The frontmen were really professional and nice though. You sit down and watch these vidoes and all of a sudden a bunch of thugs enter the room to close. I can see how a lot of people would have problems saying no.
    Anything worth doing is worth overdoing. Moderation is for cowards.
