Sales Joke of the Day (October 27) The Expressway.

The salesman's car broke down on the expressway.  So he pulled over to the shoulder of the road and jumped out of his vehicle.  After that he opened the trunk and pulled out two men in trench coats.  The men stood behind the salesman's car, opened up their coats and began exposing themselves to oncoming traffic.  The result was a terrible pileup.

A police officer arrived on the scene and surveyed the carnage.  He raged at the salesman: "Why on earth did you put these two perverts at the side of the road?"

The salesman explained:  "I broke down, and I was just using my emergency flashers."

Moral of the story.   True sales professionals know that in order to succeed at sales they must always dress professionally but never to the point of being too flashy.   You want prospects paying attention to what you have to say, rather than being distracted by what you wear.   In other words, pay attention to your 'expressed way.'

"It is the flash which appears, the thunderbolt will follow."     -    Voltaire
