Would you ever consider negotiating at your local supermarket? Can you imagine putting down your basket of groceries at the checkout and asking for a reduced price? Doesn’t that seem a good way to be politely (or not-so politely) asked to leave the store?
I love it when people start talking to me. That’s when I really get to know them. Before I met my wife, I went out on a few dates. And I wanted to get to know the women I was dating. I wanted to learn all about them. I wanted to get them to tell me all about themselves.
