It seems to me that the vast majority of people do not know how to accept no as a viable answer. I understand of course that "no" if often used a lazy excuse, but sometimes "no" is a valid responce. "No, you cannot eat all the cupcakes." "No, we are all sold out." Yet people don't like to hear no. I work at a large retail store and even when I know with 100% accuracy that we are sold out of an item, customers do not like to believe me; they insist I check again or call management. Why would I lie? Sometimes, the answer is really, and truly, no. It might be a good idea to just deal with it and move on.
