Bald on record strategy is used by Harry in the situation of urgency. In positive politeness, Harry uses it to people around him in order to satisfying their positive face. Negative politeness also used by Harry as he wants to satisfy the hearer‟s negative face. While off record strategy used by Harry because he wants to be indirect and gives the hearer clues.
