Due Diligence

“You’re entitled to your own opinions, Kevin, but you’re not entitled to your own facts,” Doug said.

“Seriously, dude,” Kevin said. “You wouldn’t know a fact if fell from the roof and smacked you on your head.”

“I fear you need to get a grip on reality, Kevin,” Doug said. “I’ve done my due diligence, I’ve read a lot on this topic, analyzed all of the relevant data, and I know that of which I speak.”

“Just zipper it up, Doug,” Kevin said. “This isn’t about you. Not everything is about you.”

“Do you hear yourself, Kevin? You’re suggesting that I don’t know my facts and that any opinion I express based upon those definitive facts is worthless?” Doug said. “Of course this is about me. Who else is this about?”

“Okay, fine, Doug,” Kevin said. “Just remember that opinions are like assholes, everyone has one and they all stink.”

“And now you’re calling me an asshole?” Doug said. “Aren’t you the forgetful one? If I recall correctly, you blew your entire savings in Trump Steaks, Trump Casinos, and Trump University because, in your opinion, he was a savvy businessman and a financial genius. I rest my case.”
