Woo, today got premium customer ordered a whole cod fish, about 1.4k, each slice bigger than my palm.
Doing business is about extending conversation.

The conversation can be meaningless, telling the obvious or asking them boring questions.
Prepare a few "pickup lines". Just keep talking. The key is avoiding awkward silence, easier to close sales.
It's even better if u rmb some details if possible, establish more human touch and connection.
This skill is useful everywhere. #吹水讲废话
My dad used to call me "clam mouth", coz my face is serious by default #他生的 and i dun talk further when customer asks for price (my mouth = clam shell = close hard 😂).
Many customers walked away without buying if I served last time. Cost him some lost before, haha.
But! I'm now his favorite helper lol... compare to my brother. 🤣
Well, programmer better, by default can be "clam mouth", that's the common expectation. 😆
