I always take a man at

I always take a man at his word unless he's given me a reason not to, and I've worked out many a satisfactory deal on the strength of a handshake. On the other hand, I've been taken to the cleaners often enough to make me a certified cynic. But I'm just too naturally cheerful to play that role for long.
