The Tactical ErrorPosted: March 30, 2012
OffTheCuff came screaming in at the last minute with the best answer. everyone knew about “the grenade”, no surprise there. that’s basic stuff.
here’s what they did wrong.
the approach and the mix set was no biggie, like i said, the open went well, the wing came in and the group looked to be having an over-all good time. then the 2 6’s gave the guys their chance and they fucked it up. when the 4 went to the bathroom, they (or even one for that manner) didn’t follow her. this is when the guys should have number closed and made an excuse to leave. i ALWAYS close the set, if she does….weak sauce. i’d have said something along the lines of this: “it’s been cool talking with you” (i’d have handed her my phone and told her to punch her number in), we’ll continue this later. besides, i need to get back to my boys. miss me.”
but they didn’t. and the 4 nuked ’em.
there you have it, when you see your opportunity…..and it might not be a large window to operate in; TAKE IT…and move on.
