You won’t get what you don’t ask for.
The worst they can say is “no.”
Well, that’s not really true. Hearing “no” isn’t that frightening.
The worst they can say is “no, how dare you have the audacity to ask me for that?”
That’s a little worse. But it’s more of a them problem than a you problem.
Alright so maybe “no” is the worst you’ll get.
Worth a try then.
