I’m going to tell you about a SECRET POSTURE today that you can use to get whatever you want, whenever you want it. So don’t tell anyone else, okay? Here’s how it works according to Slate.com…
Approach the person you’re asking for a favor… like, say, the airline employee at the desk. Give your name, and make your request. If they say no, smile and say, “Well, I’m sure we can find a way to work things out.”
Then stand off to the side in their peripheral vision… lean forward a little… clasp your hands in front of your stomach… smile… and NEVER STOP LOOKING AT THEIR FACE.
Don’t speak unless they ask you a question. Nod enthusiastically whenever the person says something to someone else.
Eventually, they’ll help you because you look nice, friendly, respectful, non-threatening… but also SUPER ANNOYING and a little CREEPY. Gee, this tactic sounds like the crap my kids pull on me… stand there and annoy me till I cave in. I think it will work!
