YEP, THE DEVIL WEARS MANY HATS AND PLAYS MANY GAMES AND ONE OF HIS FAVORITE ONES IS CALLED, BAIT AND SWITCH!
THE DEVIL ISN’T ALONE IN USING IT! ALMOST 100 % OF PEOPLE USE THIS METHOD TO GET WHAT THEY WANT. LAWYERS, CAR SALESPERSONS, REALTERS, TEACHERS……..YES, JUST ABOUT EVERYBODY!
SO HOW DOES THIS ACTUALLY WORK?
SOMEBODY WANTS SOMETHING DONE AND THEY WANT SOMEBODY ELSE TO PAY FOR IT OR DO IT FOR THEM.
FIRST THEY ASK FOR HELP/USUALLY MONEY! AND THEY “ESTIMATE” HOW MUCH THE TOTAL PROJECT WILL COST AND HOW LONG IT WILL TAKE TO GET IT ALL DONE.
THE TRICK AND MAIN POINT HERE IS TO UNDER ESTIMATE EVERYTHING FROM THE START……….THAT IS WHAT MAKES IT WORK.
SECOND, AS THE FIRST DEADLINE APPROACHES DELAYS START BUILDING UP…………EXCUSES TOTALLY REMOVED FROM THE PROJECT TAKE PLACE AND IN ORDER TO MAKE THE DEADLINE IT WILL TAKE MORE MONEY AND TIME TO GET IT DONE.
AND THAT IS REALLY ALL THERE IS TO IT………………AND THAT IS WHY IT WORKS SO WELL!
THE PROCESS CONTINUES UNTIL THE ONE/ONES PROVIDING THE MONEY REALIZE THEY ARE BEING USED AND ABUSED AND SAY NO MORE MONEY!
THE DEVIL GETS HIS PROJECT DONE OR MOST OF IT………….THE USED ONES PULL OUT WITH NOTHING EXCEPT WOUNDED PRIDE AND RELEIF THAT WHATEVER THEY’VE LOST ISN’T MORE THAN IT IS!
THE DEVIL MOVES ON TO ANOTHER UNEXPECTING PERSON AND STARTS THE GAME ALL OVER AGAIN LAUGHING ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK.
SAD BUT TRUE, AS THE OLD SAYING GOES: “IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE! IT IS!”
Reblogged this on Life's Lessons and commented:
As promised I’m re-blogging this post as additional information about the “devil”! And your “dark sides”……………..yes, you do have them!
Yes, we had that happen with our driveway several years ago. It is worse now than it was then and now who to trust to do it correctly!!?? We were raised to treat people with respect and to treat them how we would want to be treated. Sad that some people think they deserve for people to do for them and they themselves do nothing. You have taught me that it is OK to say no, that in fact, there are times when it is necessary so that the person thinking they deserve money or whatever can learn they have to get up off their lazy butts and earn the money or instead of spending money foolishly, will hopefully learn to save. Have a wonderful day and thank you so much for teaching me as I do want to learn. Love and hugs, Lil Sis 🙂
