"People are strange when you're a stranger 
Faces look ugly when you're alone 
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted 
Streets are uneven when you're down 

When you're strange 
Faces come out of the rain 
When you're strange 
No one remembers your name 
When you're strange 


Well, so true. Let me tell you how I feel about that.
I'm looking after a sailboat for 5 months. 
I have contacted around a hundred of sellers, both private and professionals, 99% by internet and emails, in the US, Canada, Mexico, Italy, Spain, England, Germany and Greece (Greece ... most 'natural' among all).

My experience is that, as long as you write questions as if you were a tough guy, somewhat deranged, a little offensive, you get quick pleasant answers but, if you look polite, kind, if you seem reasonable and well behaved, hardly people answer ... if at all !!

Yes, sad but true. People expect from others to be the image of the tyrants that drive the global business, to be wicked, distateful, contemptuous. People expect you to be a 'winner', not a fellow human being with a good heart, not to be a man who likes to communicate, to share, to have sensations, in a word, to bear a soul.

Good day !!!
