Speaking of outrageous offers…. some time ago, back when St Petersburg was still Leningrad, somebody came in my shop and offer to barter with me a full container of leather jackets for a full container of beluga!

“huh? What am i supposed to do with so much fish roe?”
“Sell them!”
“But i have a leather shop, not a Deli!”
“You can make a fortune! They are the black gold, you idiot!”

He decided that I was too dumb to realise what a bargain it was and left in a huff.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t into caviar and champagne back then. It took me a trip to Russia to understand what a great opportunity i was offered. If anyone wants to make me a offer now, I wouldn’t be so hasty to turn down.

How about half a container of leather jackets for a full container of surgeon caviar? ^^
