thisiszombocom: I don't see how making ridiculous requests prepares you for rejection when making reasonable ones.

Actually what happened was he asked his girlfriend to do an anal furry three-way, and when she said "no" he said "uh, yeah, I was just joking... I'm doing a project where I make outrageous requests in order to get rejected...."

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.

But of those three (or five) was it for sex or for sleeping? Ya see, you have to ask the right question.....

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.

I worked at a taco and sub shop and loved odd requests. You want a taco meat and bean sub with cheese and grilled peppers? Why not!

Well, rejection is what you're aiming to desensitize yourself to, the easiest way to get rejected is to make unreasonable requests. It's just a shorcut to the desired outcome, so that when you deal with it in normal life you handle it better.

I asked my wife if we could lick each others buttholes in a denny's bathroom someday.
She said no. I accept that.

Actually, his attempt at rejection was rejected by his success, thus he still succeeds.

Or something.

Nooo. He did not.

On one hand, the donut guy is cool. On the other hand, I have come to loathe these Internet Personal Projects. Look at me as I get 100 rejections! Look at me as I drink coffee at every Starbucks in the US! Look at me as I live for a year with a bird on my head!
