classic example

Another trick with baiting is to push up the victim’s ego to the point where they couldn’t possibly turn down an offer they think is their idea.
The office environment is a brillaint playground for baiting:

Watch and learn, chinas, I baited Darryl my colleague:

Peas: Darryl, you know how these pros ride the 94.7 cycle race twice in a row?
Darryl: Yah?
Peas: You’re pretty good right? I mean you did the 94.7 in 2 hours 30.
Darryl: Yeah, and I rode home afterwards. So actually I did about 160 kms.
Peas: Shit hey, that’s pretty good.
Darryl: Yeah.
Peas: So do you think you’re up there with the pros? I think you are, since you started at the front. I mean, you could do the race twice right?
Draryl: Yeah, no problems with that.
Peas; So why haven’t you done it twice yet then?
Darryl: Just haven’t felt the need I guess.
Peas: You certain you could do it twice Darryl? I mean, surely it’s something you would’ve done before already?
Darryl: I nearly did it twice this year.
Peas; Ah…but you didn’t.
Darryl: Maybe next year.
Peas; I mean…I think I could even do it twice.
Darryl: No, I don’t think you could.
Peas: I’m starting to doubt whether you could Darryl.
Darryl: Of course I could!
Peas: You have stamina Darryl, but doing a race twice really is for the pros, c'mon.
Darryl: I am a pro!
Peas: Ok sure, "You're a pro." Of course you are.
Darryl: You want me to proove it?
Peas: Hey you'd only be proving it to yourself.
Darryl: I'll do it, just say the word!
Peas: OK, do what you want, but whatever. Do it, don't do it.
Darryl: OK, fine, I’ll do it.
Peas: Don’t over-exert yourself for my sake Darryl, I mean if you can’t do it just say so.
Darryl: I could do it easily!
Peas: It’s ok if you cant, it is very tough doing it just once anyway.
Darryl: No, I’ll show you! It’s easy man.
Peas: Next year?
Draryl: Yes I’ll do it twice, you just watch.

I have got my colleague to ride the 94.7 not once but twice next year.

I rule.

Baiting successful.

but seeing as he rode home this year he's only gonna be doing an extra 40km next year if he rides the race twice. you go girl. master baiter?

Nic said...

Peas, your cruelty superceeds you. I say this cause I am not only a baiter, but a master taker. I get taken left right and centre. I often get taken by mass-baiters. A mass-bait involved more than two baiters and usually occurs around a meal table or pub setting. Everyone else is involved in the bait, but me. I hate that shit.

Peas on Toast said...

3RM - yeah, but he still hs to do the Krugersdorp Highway twice, and trust me mate, it's a killer.
MasterBaiter - ha ha ha! :)

Peas on Toast said...

Nic - babe, I got baited the ENTIRE weekend and didn't even know it. Eventually they explained the concept to me. Even still, the baiting never ends.
:)

Is it a Rhodes thing?

Nic said...

Peas, I would love to tell you that it's a rhodes thing and make both of us feel better. But it's not anything to do with other people or places... It's got to do with us. I was baited at Rhodes, at school, back in jhb, overseas... everywhere. I think it's me.

Peas on Toast said...

Shit Nic, that's a a lot of baiting.

I bet you I've been baited more than you though. I get baited like evry five minutes. Can you top that?

Peter Barlow said...

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Peas you beauty! ;-)

Peas on Toast said...

Peter - thanks chinah :)

Revolving Credit said...

Where the hell is everybody today?
Is there some blogger mass action or on-line march to parliment that no-one told me about?

And its Monday, so don't come with that 'we have work to do' crap, that what the rest of the week is for.

Even Kyk seems to have dropped off the face of the earth.

Conspiracy theory?

Peas on Toast said...

Rev - perhaps they've found something more exciting to do Rev. Maybe our sex comments are not doing it for them anymore. :(

I know, idea! I can bait them into coming back, whaddoyoussay?

"I bet you okes have nothing better to do anyway."

Let's see if we get a response.

Ramone Allones said...

bet you can't do 94.7 again...

i need a freaking holday, i'm so over 2005,uh... 6

how you?

Peas on Toast said...

Ramone - you're right, I bet I couldn't do it again. :)

I'm good dearie, hope your weekend was swell?

Urk said...

its not that i dont have anything better to d....aaah shit. busted.
naughty naughty peas.

Peas on Toast said...

:) You're too kind Urk. Thanks for giving me that my dear. ;)

Jam said...

Oooh that's evil. Best you watch that you don't get baited into riding it TWICE with him. Then again, he deserves to suffer a little since he made you ride it once.

Urk said...

i did not give it to you. you took it from me. i feel violated and used and dirtyand vunderable and i need to have a shower.NOW.

harry said...

URK, that sounds fun!
Peas, can I have some as well??

Peas on Toast said...

Jam, Smoking Legs entered me into the 94. So actually he should be doing it twice!
But on the baiting, it gets better: now Darryl's talking about doing the Apl d'Huez challenge during the Tour de France. The steepest part of the race. I kid you not.

"Ah, then two 94.7's in a row will be nothing, Darryl." :) Evil chuckle.

Urk - baiting shouldn't make one feel dirty Urkle. Dodgy sex positions in public should make you feel dirty. :)

Peas on Toast said...

Harry - chances are you wouldn't pop a beer at your desk right now. It would be too risque and silly. But if you did, that would be kinda cool. I'd need a pic as proof as well.

;)

Revolving Credit said...

Peas thats not baiting thats just giving me an excuse to drink and I suspect that you would need much more of an excuse that me.

'Smoking Legs entered me into the 94'
I of course read it as
'Smoking Legs entered me in the 94'

I'm like dude, you shagged during the race...no wonder Peas is planning to do it twice next year.

Peas on Toast said...

Rev - lol. You can't fool me.

"No wonder Peas is going to do it twice."

Rule number one: You can't bait a Baiter.

(You expected me to go "No I'm not, Darryl's doing it twice...") But I didn't.

OK, Rev, if you so hardcore, why haven't you opened that beer yet?
I'm waiting.

tom said...

peas did say it was a hard ride....

Peas on Toast said...

Tom - is this where I bait myself oke?
Like, "I bet I can't get laid in the middle of the race. Oh wait...I'll show myself I can."

No, your baiting doesn't wash with me. :)

Revolving Credit said...

What makes you think I would want to swop my currently chilled chardonnay for a beer??

Just like you wouldn't swop your cotton doondies for a pair of bloomers.

It's kinda step backwards, isn't it!

tom said...

chicken eh? well well...

on the plus side - your poen won't take much more damage anyway, and all that pain would have a reward, instead of just 94.7 sore poen for a week ;P

Jam said...

The point is, can you get laid tonight?

harry said...

Peas, I bet you can't open your car windows....hahaha

tom said...

woohoo - jam with the bait - it has the distance... - its looking good... - a little to the left... - score! a truly memorable bait by one of the professionals. We have just witnessed history in the making here bob.

Peas on Toast said...

Ha ha ha...ok chaps, game on:

Rev - I don't believe you. Where's the picture? Lie all you want buddy, "sure, I'm downing eight Jaegerbombs right now, I'm a champion, sure sure."
:)

Tom - notsomuch chicken as not being dumb, big guy. Besides if I can get laid in a bed, why would I want to ride 94.7 kms? ;)

Jam - You're right babe. It's not that I can fall for your baitage, I'm spending the evening with the folks...;)

Harry - you little fucker. I bet I can! Like tomorrow after they're fixed!
OK, you got me.

Peas on Toast said...

Tom - I bet you can't top Jam's bait though...

Jam said...

Yes, but there's always time AFTER the folks...

tom said...

you wanna ride the 94.7 in bed? OK but to last that long some Viagra is probably needed. You also won't need as much equipment ;P What's the entrance fee btw?

Revolving Credit said...

I'll send a pic of my beer if you send a pic of your bloomers

Peas on Toast said...

Jam - I'm staying over at the folks....
Nice try though. ;)

Tom - now there's a challenge I could step up to....oh, wait I'm getting baited. ;)

Peas on Toast said...

Rev - I don't wear bloomers. Just like you don't drink beer at your desk, Mr Hardcore.

Oh wait...

;)

harry said...

He shoots, he scores..
*crowd goes wild*

Peas, did you just get baited my dear?

Revolving Credit said...

I'm sure you'd rather go bald eagle than wear bloomers wouldn't you.

Peas on Toast said...

You're a professional Harry. Hands down.

Now best you help your alter-ego Rev out, he's battling. :)

Peas on Toast said...

Rev - Yes, I'd rather go bald eagle.
(This is not baiting.)

Revolving Credit said...

But does the stubble chaff if you go bald!

Peas on Toast said...

Rev - you're tangetting off the subject at hand: are you gonna drink that beer or not?

:)

I gotta go chaps. This has been fun. May the baiting continue tomorrow and forever!

PS: Harry you won, with Jam a close second...
