I get asked a lot. How do you make friends and influence people? Ok I was asked once but I'm going to tell you anyways. It's simple really, chocolate and compliments. That about sums it up. Not fake made up compliments either. The way I see it there is something good in everyone, find it and comment on it. That's all a compliment is really, relaying audibly what you like about the person standing next to you. And then give them a brownie.
