What happened, what did you do?
Some entertaining stories... An interesting project would be to go to a dept. store and deliberately single out customers (one at a time), and ask them sales related questions. You would surely see how different people react when put into the situation, and perhaps get a major reaction that you, in turn, could adopt when placed in that situation in the future.
