of the minimum wage
worker at the local mall food court
. The worker will be holding a piece of chicken marinated
in some sauce, and will make The Pitch. You take the chicken, eat it, and it never fails to taste really good
. So you say "Yeah, I'll take that", and they proceed to serve you up a vile
plate of chicken fat
. It has
to come from some other bin, because your sample was pretty tasty.
So, there are two modestly subversive ways to play the sample game:
- The Costco buffet method: Wander from eatery to eatery, taking a couple of samples from each one. Bonus points for remembering to bring a hat and moustache for twice around the horn. (The moustache is especially effective for the ladies.)
- The panhandler method: Avoid eye contact. Rush on by. Pretend not to speak English.
