While out for lunch today, a conversation took place between myself and several of my co-workers. We were trying to convince one particular co-worker to join us this coming Friday in a night out. The convincing wasn’t working so we started with negotiating:
me: I’ll help you with charges all month if you come!
D: No guys, I just don’t want to go this Friday.
K: How about if Theresa promises not to talk about the concert again until September!?!
D: …. *thinking about it* ….
me: Alright guys, let’s just forget about that. We all know that’s NOT going to happen!
