Sales Joke of the Day (November 3) Smart Pills.

One Sunday morning, a salesman takes his youngest son out to the forest to hunt for rabbits.  After about an hour, they finally come across some rabbit tracks.  In between the tracks there are little round brown pellets.   The salesman's son asks, "Dad, what are those?"

The salesman replies, "Those are smart pills.  Try a couple!"

So the salesman's son grabs of few of them and puts them in his mouth.   A second later the son makes a funny face and says to the salesman, "Ewwwwww!   Yuck!!!!   These taste like c-r-a-p!!!!"  as he spits them out as fast as he can.

The salesman says, "See, you're getting smarter already!"

Moral of the story.   True sales professionals know that in order to succeed at sales you need to learn something new everyday.   Only through experience, training, hard work and perseverance will you become better at what you do.  No matter what you might hear, true success never comes in tablet form.
