Default WHEW - How I Successfully TIPPED a Waiter with a FLYING ELEPHANT

Thanks Dien,

I read a Scientific study About Salesmanship
on page 25 of Robert Chialdini's new book

On Page 26 -

Test #1 - 33% said "Yes."

Test #2 - 99% said, "Yes" - AFTER they asked the following question.

Decided to adapt it to Tip a Waitress with something WEIRD
instead of 1.00 bills or Lotto tickets.


A FLYING ELEPHANT that "Trumpets" when you shoot it against
the wall or SMACK it.

Page 25 - has a question better suited for women.
Results went from 27% to 77% Yes. (pretty amazing)

Page 26 - for men (33% to 99% Yes) - Wow.

Tonight I drew a guy waiter.


I asked, "Do you think of yourself as Adventurous and like to try new things?

Timothy the waiter said, "YES."

So I slammed the flying elephant on the table.

And while it TRUMPETED I explained that I was TIPPING him with a
Flying Elephant because I needed someone Adventurous
to TEST it out before I sent it out to my VIP Customers.

Tim promised to shoot my FLYING ELEPHANT at some of the
guys in the kitchen.

And some of the girl waitresses.

And get back to me.


Tim was really busy.

And - so far - all I saw him doing was walking up to fellow
Employees and saying, "I'll bet you can't guess what I got as a TIP tonite."

Then SLAPPING his apron
pocket where he stuck the flying elephant.

Which resulted in LOUD - Elephant Noises!

And his fellow waitresses and waiters EYES Bugging out a bit.


P.S. - Any ladies with BRASS OVARIES and Men with BRASS ONES
reading this who want to Test Your SALES-Person-Ship.

And let me know what happens.

Please email me at [email protected]

Here is where I got the Flying Elephant...
