Do you think offering someone pancakes is an appropriate bribe or inducement?

Asked by Dan_Lyons (5376 points ) June 22nd, 2014

If you really wanted someone to get off their duff(s) and do something, would the offer of pancakes do it for you?

What would it take to get you off your duff(s)?

No, unless they were herbal essence pancakes with chocolate chips. lol
I haven’t gotten high for about 3 or 4 months but nothing gets me more motivated to tackle projects, especially creative projects than a little greenery. haha

Ummmmm, yummy. Green Pancakes. Sounds like something from Dr. Seuss, or some other Dr.

if they know anything about Fluther, I think it would be highly inappropriate.

That was a great thread @dappled_leaves Thanks.

The promise of sexual favors is a huge motivator.

On Fluther, maybe. Haha.

If we’re talking Fluther “pancakes” then yes. I am certainly motivated by that.

Not so much as a “bribe” though. That implies something illegal or immoral, which is rather not participate in.

@cookieman I’ll trade you a cookie for a pancake…..

It works for my Little Man as pretty decent bribe. His father used it to a few weeks ago to bribe him into going over to his girlfriends house because Little Man had expressly told his father repeatedly he didn’t want to go.

Depends on the favor asked, who’s asking and how hungry I am. Also, a bonus if they’re apple flapjacks or blueberry pancakes.

@jca Banana Walnut pancakes with maple syrup mixed in with melted butter.

@Dan_Lyons: Sounds very sweet. Maybe too sweet.

I don’t like pancakes, so that wouldn’t do it for me. Chocolate would be a better motivator.
