I had another unique opportunity at work today, to TOTALLY GUILT SOMEONE INTO DOING WHAT I WANT....
I wouldn't have done it, but I'd only asked them nicely 27 times already, and while getting blown off is mostly just annoying, sometimes, it's all about the bottom line. On those occasions, they better just shut the hell up and do what I say. When it comes to money, I get all serious.
In those times, you have to make them feel your words--and since dropping an anvil on their head is not allowed, you go with the next strongest thing--hideous, gut-wrenching guilt.
Remember, people, your expectation of quality service depends on whether or not one scatterbrain has been strong-armed into not losing your paperwork today.
Thank me later.
