Hmm, I’m skeptical about what population they polled to get 85%. However, to answer the question, no. I don’t think I have the ability to flirt. I think it would scare the other person away. Maybe they would even report me to security. I think I’d better just go on paying full price.
I will give the same impression, SKL! People will look at me think if I lost my marbles, lol.
Just this evening I got a discount. Not by flirting, but just by finding a “break” on the product I wanted to buy. I needed a new suitcase, and at Ross they had a great one, but on the smaller one, there were still the keys with the little lock on, and on the bigger one, the keys weren’t there. I did “play” innocent to the manager and asked if there was a spare pair of keys. She told me that that was not the case, but if I wanted to purchase this article, she would give me 10 percent discount!! I said, I can accept that. My husband was starting to tell me, while that store manager was still there, that we never can use those keys on international flights, but I gave him a “look” and he understood he had to “zip it”, lol.
Yes I do but it never seems to work. I’ll keep tring though.
I’ve never been a good flirt and I’ve never flirted to get something free/reduced.
Hmmm, not really, at least not consciously anyhow. I am very interested in people so I have a way of expressing this without being coquettish about it.
No. I can’t say that I’ve ever flirted to get what I wanted. That’s too much like game playing to me and I’ve never been good at that. That high number amazes me.
No, I’ve never flirted to get something I want.
I should add, I used to have a flirty side….but that is LONG gone! I never used it to get what I want though.
I’m too shy to flirt.
Only with my husband and it usual doesnt work,just leads to laughter!I must look silly!!
LOL Oh I do that all the time…he always knows! “What did you do?” or “What do you want?”…lol
I’ve never actually flirted with anyone to get anything, but when I owned a cookie route, where I delivered to all the stores in a given area, I used to tell people I worked with that a wink and smile never hurt when asking for displays. The actual truth was that the smile (I’ve never been one to wink) and consistently good service is what really enabled to get display pieces where others hadn’t been as successful. I consistently ranked either in first or second place for total sales each month. My top competitor was a man who didn’t wink but used the smile and good service as well.
