I've learned long ago not to take no for an answer, whether that "no" is delivered by cold shoulder, a slammed door, or a couple of New York's Finest showing up to escort me off the premises. (Yes, I mean you. I know you're reading this now, and you can bet that I'm not going to be kind to you in the book.)

You learn early that the first answer is always no, the second answer is always that you're crazy, and the third is to clam up and call for an attorney or security. That's when you know you're really closing in on something.
