When your uncle speaks to the company chairman, he tells the chairman something he didn't already know. Perhaps the chairman didn't know who you were - so the uncle talks about you to inform him that you are looking for a job. Perhaps the chairman doesn't know whether you'd make a good worker, so the uncle tells him how hard-working and dedicated you are. And this might give the chairman enough information that he wants to give you an interview.

I will give u an example of intercession. say u need a job, the chair man of the company ur going to apply to knows ur uncle. so u ask ur uncle to big u up a little, get ur foot in the door, the rest ul sort out. this is basically intercession, you pray to God, but the Ahlul-Bayt bigs u up a little so inshallah ur prayer is accepted.
But why do the Ahlul-Bayt need to "big you up''? What could they possibly say to God about you that he didn't know already?

Yes well done
that's what I'm trying to show you, there is no basis for what Shias get up to or why they should be doing anything different to what Sunnis do, considering 99% of muslims are Sunni. You can quote all the scholars you like, that's what the Shias I spoke to did; it makes little difference.

My parents family friends are Shia muslims, but their cousins are sunni and I've talked to them about what they believe,and they believe that you can just pray your prayers in 15 mins and chill for the rest of the day, or just catch up at the end of the month. There's your source.
See what I did there?
That's not even remotely reliable. Why would you take the words of a layman over a scholars?
