Sometimes Nice Guys Finish First

I was just trying to book a hotel room, and the cost was a bit more than I was expecting. So I asked the nice lady …

ME:  “Is that your best rate?” 

HER: “Sorry, it really is … unless you qualify for a discount.”

ME: “Really … how do I qualify for a discount?” 

HER: “Well, are you a AAA card holder?”

ME: “No.”

HER: “How about military? Are you active military?”

ME:  “No.” 

HER: “Are you a member of our rewards program?” 

ME: (I’m sure I was sounding depressed by now) “No ma’am, sorry.”

HER: “So, if you’re not a AAA member, a military member or rewards program member … do you have anyhing at all to offer?”

ME: “Well, I’m really a super nice guy?” I said, just kinda kidding around.

HER: “There you go” she said excitedly, “that’s worth 20% right there!” 

ME: “Really?” I said.

HER: “Absolutely … we need more super nice guys in our world.” 

:)

Who says … “Nice guys finish last.”

    …and it sounds like she’s a super nice girl, too!

    I love these negotiation stories – I guess it’s the Dave Ramsey in me!

    What happens when she finds out the truth?

  3. Debbie Thomas says:

    You are always nice to me when I post, and I’m a Morman…….people aren’t always nice to us these days. So I think you are a really nice guy too.

  4. That is totally awesome. Gave me a good laugh and you got a discount to boot. A neat demonstration of the favor of the Lord. God is so good.
