BarkingUnicorn: KrispyKritter: one must risk rejection to gain acceptance. dooshbag should become a used car salesman. salesmen quickly learn that every no brings you closer to that yes.csb: I attended a small tech college in the early 70s. There were only 127 female students. One day, my friend and I polled every one of them with a simple question: "Will you go to bed with me?" Nobody called the cops. Five said "yes." Three actually meant it.
NkThrasher: Never underestimate the resourcefulness of bored employees when you strike their fancy with a weird request.When your job is "Pick up X amount of Y doughnut, put into bag, rinse, repeat, wipe hands on pants" something like this once in a while probably breaks up the monotony nicely.
