Ok, this is getting pathetic. All I'm doing is asking for discounts. That's not really in keeping with the "spirit" of this project.
I just made a hotel reservation for a wedding I'll be attending in the fall. Already sure of the answer, I asked nevertheless, "Do you have an AAA discount, or any other kind of discounts?" In his kindest voice, the receptionist told me I'm already getting the wedding rate. So I just looked cheap. Great.
Gained: An ounce of humility.
