Post about a time you utilized your skills of persuasion, a Jedi mind trick, or skullduggery to get out of some situation.
Here's mine. During my undergrad, I had the brilliant idea to take Latin for my language requirement. At level 4, it was clear that I was likely going to fail out and screw myself royally in regards to grad credits required to get out on time (i.e. 4 years). I went and talked to my advisor who told me I'd have to talk to some bigwigs about getting out of the language requirement, my argument of the day being I was already bilingual, so why couldn't I use the creds somewhere else. I lucked out, got a guy who happened to be an ex-Peace Corps volunteer RPCV-Philippines, and the extent of the conversation was me talking to him about his service and near the end, him saying, what's the word for "cat" again...that was a long 5 seconds where my BSing mind had to go through ibon, no, aso, no...oh yeah, on the hotseat now, pusa. If I had only done it prior to taking four quarters of Latin...so whatcha got?
