Thank You, Meta Model, for Helping in My Hour of Need

A couple of recent experiences:

First, on a train. I get on, and a woman has her bag on my booked seat, so I politely ask her to move it. She replies "People are sitting where they want." I say "Some people may be, but I have a reservation." Flustered, she moved to sit somewhere else, though she didn’t need to. People are strange.

Second, on the phone. I’m talking to a tv production company. The man I am speaking to says "We don’t normally accept unsolicited submissions." I respond "So under what circumstances would you relax that rule?". And proceed to outline exactly why he should read my script. He relents, saying that the general policy is in place to deter nutcases. Result.

Have you found yourself using the meta model for fun and profit lately? What were the circumstances, and what was the result?
