Please give me some money. I only want about $25,000 for an exhibition.
I wont call you lair, i’ll even put your name on all the advertising and tell every newspaper that interviews me that you gave me the money and I’m very grateful for it.
I promise I’ll never bad mouth you, start nasty stories about you or hold my hand out for even more money while I’m stabbing you in the back and trying to destroy your reputation.
Its a damn sight better deal and a lot cheaper than the one you have right now.
