..when i told him my present job/money situation, he politely let me know that there was no need for me to sit through any more than the three minutes we'd already shared. ..i did find out that a time-share was about $5000.00 u.s., that the maintenance fee as about $260.00 per year, and that the off-the-street price for the room i'm staying in is about $120.00 per night.
