There once was a man who wouldn’t take no for an answer. Whenever anybody responded “no” to a request, an inquiry, a plea, he’d respond, “I’m sorry, but I refuse to take no for an answer.” This man, who lived in New York, decided one day to move to Philadelphia, so he boarded a train with all his things and asked the conductor if he was on the right train for Philadelphia. “No,” the conductor told him. The man replied, “I’m sorry, but I refuse to take no for an answer,” and he took a seat. He now lives in Boise, Idaho.
