"Wall, can I get your comments on my article by tomorrow?" "Sure." "You say, 'sure,' but we both know it's a lie." "You just want me to go away." "You plan to wait until tomorrow and make an excuse." "Then you'll hope I'll give up." "Yes, but remember, my comments are always worthless, they would cause you extra work and worsen the result." "So if I give you nothing. Everyone wins." "In that case, thank you for ignoring my needs." "It's the least I could do."
