TRICKS OF THE TRADE

A column dedicated to “life hacks” from professional magician
Jamie D. Grant of www.SendWonder.com

Hiya Gang!

I had to take last month off to go visit the beautiful island of
Hawaii and now that I’m back, I’ve got a great life hack for you.
It’s so good; I’m actually going to title it:

How to Get Upgraded to First Class, Get the Best Table at a Restaurant, Cut Your Rental Car Cost by 70%, Get The Perfect Girl To Go Out With You, Get a Raise at Work, Score the Best Deal on A New Car, Pay Less at a Hotel the Anyone Else, and Generally Have an Easier Life.

Ask. *

 

 

* You have NO IDEA how much I wanted to end the article there.
A one-word article would have been epic!  But I feel I owe you
more so I’ll explain it in a bit of detail.  That said, there’s not much
to tell.  I’ve done all of those things, simply by asking.  That’s it.
When we were in Hawaii, I must have asked the car rental guy,
“C’mon Brian (he was wearing a nametag)!  You’re killing me,
here. What else can you do?” about ten times.  And it went from
$500 to $150.  When we fly, I always say, “A friend told me that
if we’re super nice to you, you can upgrade us. Is that true? And,
before you answer, let me tell you how beautiful you look today.”
Bam! Podlife for two.  It’s that easy.  So this short piece isn’t a cop-
out, it’s simply the truth.  No need to draw it out, I reckon.  So go
out and get it.  I’m asking you.
