When there were old-school parking meters in New York, quarters were precious.
One day, I’m walking down the street and a guy comes up to me and says, “Do you have a dollar for four quarters?” He held out his hand with four quarters in it.
Curious, I engaged with him. I took out a dollar bill and took the four quarters.
Then he turned to me and said, “can you spare a quarter?”
What a fascinating interaction.
First, he engaged me. A fair trade, one that perhaps even benefited me, not him.
Now, we have a relationship. Now, he knows I have a quarter (in my hand, even). So his next request is much more difficult to turn down. If he had just walked up to me and said, “can you spare a quarter,” he would have been invisible.
Too often, we close the sale before we even open it.
not all reality t.v is scripted. but im talkin strictly based on a shows entertainment value vh1 got it hands down.
i went to h.s wit this nigga “IT” from ilm2 and even though his retarded demeanor is an act the producers from the show arent the ones who are telling him to do it. hes doin all that shit on his own.
