While at the gas station this morning I was approached:
Solicitation: You got a dollar?
Response: “I don’t have a…” (interrupted)
Pitch: “One day you’re gonna blow all this up aintcha?!"
Assessment: “Is that your pitch? Does that work on other people?”
Negotiation: “Gimme a dollar!”
Point of contention: “You gotta be kidding me. I know who you are! And every time I pass you look at me like you want to kill me. Go try your pitch somewhere else!”
Closer: (Walks away on unneeded crutches)
