One thing is for sure - saying thank you is a nice thing to do. It makes you feel good, and makes the receiver feel valued.

I've been DJing for a number of years mostly in London and sometimes across the country. I meet a number of interesting characters and it's also at times made me gather a large amount of hate I have for mankind. Why?
