I got to thinking that if I simply took some of the more common conversations I have on a daily basis and swapped the “fiverr” part of it out for, say…an “actual business.” They might sound like this.
At Starbucks: “Um, I only have $3 for the tall, but I want a venti, with 2 extra shots for the $3”?
At restaurant: “Um, Could you cook me a small piece of steak, and if I like it, I’ll buy one”?
At grocery: “Um, if you give me these apples at a discount, I promise to buy lots more someday.”
At laundry: “Um, ticket says, ready Friday, when will my order be ready”? Oh, rush service costs extra, can I have it rush for free anyway…I’ll appreciate it"?
At rail station: "Um, my ticket says “good for 1 fare”, but I want to ride again free. You want to charge me again, not fair, not fair.
These are a few of my favorite things…
