Shooting Salesmen Conversation
We have a security system, which you know about if you’ve read any of the other recent posts here. Well, our sign attracts competitors constantly. Let’s say we have Company A. Company B sees the sign and knows we have already felt we wanted a system so they stop by constantly to offer us a “better” deal. I see their thought process but in my opinion your best customers are new customers. Totally new. However, I see what they are doing. They are thinking that if we already went with one company then we are open to the idea of another. Regardless, we’ll have up to 7 of these guys (usually from ADT) stop by in a month. It’s annoying. One stopped by when Rich was home.
Rich: He want to sell us another system as usual. I told him we were not interested and they had nothing like we have anyway.
Me: They saw our sign.
Rich: I should shoot them on the lawn. You can do that in Florida.
Me: LOL No you can’t. You have to feel threatened for your life. You can’t just shoot salesmen.
Rich: I know but we’ll say he was eyeballing our system and we felt threatened.
Now this was all in jest but it cracked me up. It might not make you laugh but we did. I promise you we don’t just shoot folks. Zombies, yes. Salespeople, not yet.
