  3. You ASKED for the wrong amount:
    Yes this is a big amount and please know that I thought long and hard before I ASKED for this amount. Let’s see if we can work something out that fits within your comfort zone at this time.
  4. You ASKED and didn’t follow up:
    There is no excuse for not getting back to you, and I want you to know I learn from my mistakes. I am very interested in hearing your thoughts, and I will work with you on your schedule to see if we can make this happen.
  5. You didn’t ASK but assumed you did:
    Thinking back over our last conversation, I realized I was not clear and specific enough, and that was not fair to you. So let me be clear with you now. I am ASKING you for….
