Sales Joke of the Day (February 14) Elderly Valentine's Day.

It was Valentine's Day.  The elderly salesman and his wife were lying in bed that night.  The salesman was beginning to fall asleep, 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 moments later she said:  "Then you used to kiss me."

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

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

Angrily, he threw back the blankets and got of out bed.

"Where are you going?" asked his wife.

"To get my teeth!"

True sales professionals know that in order to be successful at sales, sometimes it takes patience.   Certain prospects will make you jump through hoops.  They just love to live through some of the old times over and over and over again before they place their order.   The best thing you can do, is to just have patience, grin and bare it.   And if you still have them, show some teeth.
