Become a Yes Guide

It sometimes helps to think in metaphors.

So, imagine yourself back in the Dark Ages, young and hungry for meaning and with a host of guilds to choose from for your apprenticeship (victualler, ironmonger, and lorimer have particularly caught your eye, in part because they're open to women).

One particular guild is focused on something called Yesallurgy, and although its guild hall is widely reputed to be dark and dank, you're tempted. You trudge in your weird pointy shoes to the village of Yes and post your request to join on a huge smoke-tinged wood-and-brass door—then knock and run away. You wait....

Just kidding. It doesn't ever help much to think in metaphors.
