The following is an excerpt from “The PR Fix for the Everyday Person” © 2014 by Jenny Fujita and Joy Miura Koerte. A lot of people wave away gifts in all of their forms, from presents to awards, compliments and prizes. It may not even be because they don’t like or want the gift, but the it may make them feel embarrassed to receive the gesture or boastful if they accept a compliment. You probably know people like this. You may have even been one of them on occasion. We all have. Your child is calling for you, “Mommy! Mommy! Come here! I have something for you!” You unenthusiastically respond, “I’ll be there in a minute,” because you’re in the middle of something and another distraction will drive you batty. Or, the cashier in the grocery store says, “Lovely outfit.” You respond quietly, “It’s really old.” The postmaster offers you a free lollipop. You say, “No thanks” and scoot to your car in a hurry. And so on.
