Nothing brings out my inner animal like a good deal and a poorly worded price-matching policy. Today’s poll is quite simple: what’s your inner animal and when do you (willingly or unwillingly) let it out?
Like the zebra, I make a statement. I usually attract a lot of attention (whether I want to do so or not – and I usually do not), predators always seem to think they can feed on me (but are often surprised to find I’m tougher than I look), and I’m actually a rather skittish and bashful person. When put in a corner, this baby swings low and fast.
When the salesman at a large electronics store challenged my request that they price match a new computer monitor with another store, as per their policy, I started swinging. I got $70 off the price in the end, but it took me shifting from skittish and wary to aggressive and angry. Then I withered and collapsed in a heap when I got home because haggling is so exhausting.
So what about you? What’s your inner animal (pics welcome!) and when does it come out?
