Can I Get a Discount?

Image courtesy of www.yourmedicalbills.com

What is it with most celebrities that in spite of their huge earnings, there is always that craving to want and get excited about getting gifts, freebies, or just about anything that is free?

Television Personality TP and her "partner" went out to dine in a posh restaurant specializing in pricey steaks. TP sought out the Restaurant Manager RM and told her that she would tweet about her dining experience in the place and put a photo of the food and steak in her social media account(s). RM was surprised with the gesture and thanked her. Right at the moment, TP took the opportunity to request for a discount for the effort. In other words: TP wanted an ex-deal for tweeting! MR although caught off-guard, was kind enough to grant her a big discount.

The next time around, TP went to the restaurant again. And once again, she had a chat with RM and told her that the previous tweets she did about the restaurant had resulted in so many responses (retweets, favorites), and explained to RM with pride that this kind of interaction will mean more sales and business for the restaurant. RM was more generous this time and gave TP free dinner! Of course, TP was more than delighted.

The third time, TP went there again, requested to talk to the manager once more, perhaps hoping for a special treatment. But alas, TP was told that RM was not at the restaurant at that time. For the first time, MP had her dinner – paid without discount. But unknown to her, RM was just around the restaurant all the while. She just decided to hide from TP as her request for discount is getting to be a habit – a big, bad habit for business.

  15. FP parang ikaw naman si TP na sobra kuripot - ang tipid mo sa clue ha. pero ito ang wild guess ko...when I started following her on twitter, i noticed that she always tweet the photos of the food. one time, she posted first the food they had for lunch then her partner posted a pic of the table. so i concluded that they were together at M****'s GB*. I also spotted them together at Rockwell tent bazaar. oh nakaka stress ba ang haba ng comment ko sa BI? hahaha

  16. Mga tupperware kayo. Porke ba celebrity, di na pwedeng magtipid? If I know, kayo nga di celebrity, humihingi rin kayo ng discount. EWAN!

  24. I don't think CD should be castigated for this. First, she asked for a discount in which RM willingly obliged in agreement that she'll tweet about her experience in dining in the restaurant. On her second visit, it is RM who offered to have her dinner in gratis as a result of increased patronage. If she insisted that her dinner on her 3rd visit should be free and made a scene, then we can surmise that she's using her status to gain advantage over others but it seems that she paid for her dinner without giving out a rant. RM should have not given her free meal if he could not sustain to spoil her with it. He should have settled in giving her discount every time she dines in. She's an effective endorser for all its worth and a free meal is such a small favor to return.

  29. bastos din si RM. bakit di niya hinarap si TP at sabihin ng maaayos na di na sya pede magbigay ng discount? that should have put TP in the right place!

    1. "that should have put TP in the right place!"

      babastusin sya ni RM? that makes RM more of being polite.

    2. oo nga. I'm sure si RM ang source ng BI. Paano pa ba malalaman ni FP ito kung hindi rin sa chismosang RM na ito. I would not patronize this place!

      Delete
    3. talaga? sa tingin mo kung ginawa yan ng RM di gaganti si C. Sisirain nya name ng resto at masisisante sa trabaho si poor RM. Isip isip!

  31. Si C ba un TP? Nag comment na sya. I doubt she is. Nakasabay namin sila mag dinner way back nag pay naman sya. At mayaman naman siya. Maybe iba. Kawawa naman din kung hindi sya. Maybe we should put our self to her shoes. Di ba?
