Sales Joke of the Day (November 10) Bedtime.

An elderly salesman and his wife were lying in bed one night, preparing to fall asleep for the evening.  The salesman was starting to drift into slumber but his wife was in a romantic mood and wanted to talk.

She said, "You used to hold my hand when we were courting."

Wearily the salesman reached across, held her hand for a second and tried to get back to sleep."

A few minutes later she said:  "Then you used to kiss me."

Mildly irritated, the salesman reached across, gave her a peck on the cheek and and settled down to sleep.

Thirty seconds later she said:  "Then you used to bite my neck."

Angrily, the salesman threw back the bed sheets and got out of bed.

"Where are you going?" his wife asked.

"To get my teeth!"

Moral of the story.  True sales professionals know that in order to succeed at sales you need to be alert and at your best each and every business day.   That means you need to get a good night's sleep BEFORE you can sink you teeth in to a full day at the office.

"One of the secrets of a long and fruitful life is to forgive everybody everything every night before you go to bed."  -  Bernard Baruch
