The art of the 'blag'

The art of the 'blag'Everyone knows that money saving when travelling is paramount.
Well my question relates to this very point and also explores the idea of the ‘blag’. I am talking about situations where you have been able to sweet talk your way into or out of a situation to your benefit.
Blags occur all the time and it gives us poor, penniless travellers a timely fillip whether it be free entrance to a club or bar, upgrades to first class on flights or train journey or a way to get yourself out of a tight situation.
Blagging can be very rewarding and fun, as long as everything is legal and above aboard. Stretching the truth is a part of our nature and can often work to our benefit.
I am therefore interested in hearing of any experiences of this kind. This can be from any country in the world, from the smallest blag to the biggest.
This could be a fun way to learn of people’s experiences and give others tips and hope for their future benefit.
