"GET WHAT YOU WANT" simply has no meaning, or value, if you will. Neither before the fact nor after.
A priori: If someone, e.g., Phillip, can't decide between two equally desirable alternatives, "Get what you want." does little to indicate which is the *best* choice.
Ex post: If someone, e.g., Upset Jim, later regrets an earlier decision and says, "Gee, the BMW salesperson violated my 'Rule One', TUFF! It has no exculpatory purpose in the context. We know for a fact that they did in fact get what they wanted because they paid for it.
