Old joke about the kid who killed his parents and then pleaded for mercy in court because he was an orphan.

(taken from Digital Filmmaking 101 book by Dale Newton and Josh Gaspard, page 31)
And from there you can bargain for better. You've got to have the chutzpah to keep pushing for more and more -- or in this case, less and less.

Chutzpah amounts to a total denial of personal responsibility, that renders others speechless and incredulous, one cannot quite believe that another person totally lacks common human traits like remorse, regret, guilt, sympathy and insight.
Good example of chutzpah:
"Mikhail Bogdanov, Russia’s deputy foreign minister in charge of Middle East issues, told a meeting of EU ambassadors in Moscow last week that the reconstruction of Syria would top the agenda very soon, according to European diplomats. He said “tens of billions of dollars” would be needed, while warning that “nothing” should be expected from Russia, the diplomats said."
