Eg on a restaurant, you shouldn’t ask a staff or a waiter to give you a discount when asking for the bill. It is beyond their powers unless they are giving away their commissions ( if there is).
Only on a family run restaurant if you are talking to the boss or owners should you do so.
It applies at the corporate scene as well
You only ask the questions to the right people.
