Don’t shine a light into the eyes of an elephant

Most animals don’t like having a light shone in their eyes.

But that’s ok, because most animals can’t hurt you.

Not so an elephant.

If you irritate an elephant, you risk being squashed.

So don’t do it.

Same goes in business.

Most people/companies you encounter can’t respond to your irritating ways.

But some can.

Better to not irritate them than risk being squashed.
