Asking for it

When headmaster, Albus Dumbledore, was arrested and removed from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry and Ron watched from underneath the invisibility cloak, horrified at the events.  Before he left, Albus looked right through the cloak, and said, “Help will always be given at Hogwarts to those who ask for it.” The art of asking involves identifying what the question is, finding the right people to ask, and then asking, which seems simple, but sometimes isn’t.  Dumbledore was full of wisdoms:

The question of why some people squawk at the slightest discomfort and others wait way late to peep is complex.  I’ve assessed myself as tending toward the latter end of the spectrum and now training in the art of complaining… the ask.  Some people are experts at it.  When you run into a skilled complaint/ask artist, notice, observe, perhaps lift a lesson or two.
