5 Johns Persuasion Story What I wanted: new golf clubs. Context: Had no money.

6 Johns Persuasion Story Story: It was Spring and golf season was upon us. I had some old clubs and really wanted new ones. The problem was I had no money, but I did have an idea--ask for them. So presented a my argument to my dad. It was his responsibility to provide for me, so he needed to buy me new clubs. My clubs were in bad condition and needed to be replaced. He didnt buy it. But I am persistent. But dad, it would make me happy, and dont you want to see me happy? Still didnt work. He said I had to buy them myself. Finally, I resorted to a plan. Offer to mow the lawn all summer if I got the clubs early. I explained the cost of the clubs was less than moving the 20 times (the average for the summer). He agreed!
