If this keeps up Dilbert won’t have a shirt
I met a salesman like that once.
Forceful, if ineffective, selling strategies.
That is a good salesman from a management point of view. He will be a CEO one day.
I went to Best Buy to get a wireless keyboard. Some guy, not an employee, came up beside me, started telling me which one I should get and why. When I decided on a different model, he just went off, but I felt like I had insulted him. I’m still having trouble getting my fingers in the right place on this Logitech keyboard, but I love it anyway because it’s hot looking and has about a hundred keys that I’ll never use.
I love that this one is old enough that he it out buying a MODEM… I’m not even sure my work laptop (Windows) even has a modem any longer, even though it’s due to be “aged out of service” in a few months…
I remember the days of buying a 56K modem and trying to get one that matched your ISP: K-flex or X2? Later it was hardware (better) or a software modem (waaay cheaper)… :-P
From the looks of this equipment, I wonder what an electronics store will look like in another 24 years?
I have a 10 megabit/sec modem supplied by the cable company WOW (wide open west).
Wow, when this was new Dilbert would have been looking at dialup phone modems at 14.4K.
Is that Tiny Liz as cashier?
Hit him with a rolled-up newspaper, Dilbert—at least, that’s what used to be recommended for “over-enthusiastic” pets who would latch unto you….
As Pamm mentioned, sometimes things are worse for us women. A persistent salesman at the cell phone store had just sold me a cell phone, but when it came to the case, he insisted that “the ladies always like the purple.” I didn’t like the purple; I wanted the black. He kept at it for a couple of minutes, insisting that I should buy the purple one! I finally just started heading towards the cashier, and left with – you guessed it – a cell phone with a BLACK cover!
