    Okay... although my self esteem has always been very low; being an actress I've learned to put on a show for the person behind a cash box and... well... get things on the house. :smug:

    I was wondering how many of you ever use your charms to get things for a 'discount'? If you have-- what did you manage to get? XD
    I am such a horrible person! WAHH!!

    ...Not trying to brag, of course, but I've managed to get quite a bit by chatting up people... (I'm dangerous, aren't I?!)
    A few things like:
    free meals and drinks
    staff discounts on clothing
    free transit rides
    ...yep. It's not just from guys either-- ladies watch out! :lol!: <anyone know why this emoticon has Goku's hair?>

    Haha XD Don't feel too bad, I used to do this too. Unfortunately, not really comfortable doing it now I'm in a relationship, so full price on everything from now on!

    Nope, taking advantage of people is one of the things that doesn't sit well with me.

    Altering my personality in order to obtain a handout isn't my style.

    I tried and it backfired. I tried showing off my cleavage - I had those puppies pushed up, I had global collison and spillage going let me tell you! - problem was the professor who's class I was trying to add was fucking blind!

    lol! XD

    I don't see my 'technique' as taking advantage of a person.
    I'm patient and sweet- and it's like a trade. I brighten up their crappy work day a bit, and they toss me a discount out of good will?
    It's not like I'm out there giving people bj's in exchange for a coffee and doughnut. :donut:

    And technically- I'm always acting... I'm not ever myself when I step outside of my bedroom.
    ...I think then I'd probably get free crap out of pity for sucking so bad, though...

    I don't but one of my daughters does. It amazes me some of the things she gets.

    Not all of us have to alter out personality and - to be blunt- some of us need the "handouts".

    Never. First, I do not have charm and second I do not want anything from others. Once one guy gave me his walled and said buy what you want. I did not because I thought he may want something back :evil:

    Yes, I havce an annoying habit of writing complaint letters and manage to get compensation/free things. Even worse than that, I regularly complain in restaurants to get a discount on the bill.

    I don't have the confidence or self-esteem to do something like that. It'd also weigh heavily on my conscience and I'd feel terribly guilty for the longest time. I mostly buy things online though, so it wouldn't come in handy even if I was capable of something like that.

    I'm a guy and I regularly pull this off. And before anyone judges, as said, some of us NEED the freebies.

    I used to. In my teens and 20's, My BF worked at a restoration shop for exotic cars. They always sent me to get parts/things fixed. I wasn't conning people, but I tried to dress nice and be fun and funny. I'd often get things at cost or the labor for free. I think it's partly because women were unusual in chrome shops, etc. If someone didn't have the authority and was cheating the business, I didn't accept. I don't like the thought of ripping someone off. But, if it was the owner, and he wasn't asking for "favors," it was cool.

    I feel like I am an ugly guy, or at least that is maybe my selfesteam talking. As a guy, I dont have the looks to get a woman, let a lone to get "freebies" with my looks.

    If I had the looks, I would want the comfort of companionship of a woman over anything "free" any day. At this point, I am not holding my breath of ever getting that!
