It’s like this pimple which just refuses to disappear off your face, it’s like this boil which refuses to heal, it’s like dandruff which refuses to disappear irrespective of whatever shampoo you use, it’s like this rat which refuses to eat the juicy masala vada in the rat trap, it’s like the cold wind which chills you in places which you never knew existed in your body, it’s like common cold, you never know from where you could contract it, it’s like this ringing sound in your ears which refuses to quieten down, it’s like watching Beavis and Butthead with their irritating laughter which never stops………

Dilbert-speak: One of the techniques for persuasion involves giving people things they didn’t ask for, thus triggering a psychological need to reciprocate; then you sell them something they don’t want. People are so conditioned to giving something in return for receiving something that they have trouble in controlling the impulse.
