    Whenever I’m up against someone who claims they’re not interested, I rise to the challenge. Women love a loser with balls.

    90% of salespeople give up on the first “no”. The others fall by the wayside in percentual terms proportionate with the number of rejections. It’s the salesperson who calls back the 12th time who makes the sale.
     
    Of course, they have no friends, live lonely, embittered lives, and have left a trail of broken bodies and resentment behind them, but they can sure enjoy that big bonus and that fancy car.
     
    Every moment is a choice, and every choice has prices and benefits.

    Toilet Seat: that gave me worse nightmares than your lame ghost, Teresa. Holy flapping Ow!

     
    Families: This reminded me of the heart-wrenching finale to Mrs. Doubtfire: “There are all sorts of different families, Katie. Some families have one mommy, some families have one daddy, or two families. And some children live with their uncle or aunt. Some live with their grandparents, and some children live with foster parents. And some live in separate homes, in separate neighborhoods, in different areas of the country – and they may not see each other for days, or weeks, months… even years at a time. But if there’s love, dear… those are the ties that bind, and you’ll have a family in your heart, forever.”

    Certainly you may encourage another idea to become established, however that will only give you another opportunity to shoot it down, time and time again. So what is the use?

    @The Old Wolf It’s the salesperson who calls back the 12th time who gets tracked down and mysteriously disappears.

    You just keep it short and simple:

    “Sorry. Not interested. Bye.”

    Since it is apparent to me that you have no interest in my ideas let me just shake the ole etch-a-sketch and present you with another softer version.

    Then, after I’m elected, I’ll do damn well what I please.

    Have an idea, please if you would place it into the suggestion box that is over there upon the wall.. We may see about getting back with you, however that remains to become seen..

    Blog: Why does Sinatra have all those guns. Wasn’t Jilly Rizzo always around to take care of stuff like that? Recommended reading, one of the all time great Esquire stories, and the best Sinatra story ever:

    And to me, child of the late 60s, the ghost looks like Sparky Sperm.

    @The Old Wolf

    If I say no to a product and the salesperson starts a second pitch, I will boycott the department. A third pitch and I will boycott the company. And I can’t be the only one. Marketers: don’t push me.
