A: Hey, do you think you can ask for a burger refill at a restaurant? B: What? Is that possible? A: No, that's why I'm asking. I just watched this guy named Jia Jiang on YouTube, and he asked for a burger refill. B: So? did he get it? A: Of course not, which actually was the point: getting rejected. He made many other requests to strangers and mostly got turned down. B: Why is he trying to get rejected? A: Jiang said his goal was to desensitize himself to the pain and shame of rejection and overcome his fear. B: Oh, I can understand him to some extent. I used to be afraid of saying “no” to others, but got over it after realizing nothing terrible happens when I reject a request. A: I think both rejecting and being rejected are just parts of everyday life. You might need to train yourself, though, like Jiang. B: I wanna train myself by doing this: sleeping at a mattress store. Ask firstname.lastname@example.org for anything!
