Sales Joke of the Day (February 22) Dental Floss.

The salesman stood in front of the bathroom mirror, carefully flossing his teeth. "Ooh!" he would sigh every once in a while, or "Aaah!" as the little thread did its work. 

Suddenly and seemingly without provocation, his wife stomped into the bathroom and gave him a swift kick. 

Bewildered, the salesman demanded, "What was that for?" 

"I'm sorry," his wife replied stiffly, ... "but I just don't believe in sighing flossers."

Moral of the story.   True sales professionals know that in order to succeed at sales they need to be able to quickly build rapport with new prospects.  One of the easiest ways to accomplish this is with a smile.  When you smile, you want to make sure your teeth are sparkling, clean, and all there.   In order to guarantee good oral health and a healthy smile you need to brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss regularly.

"Smile, for everyone lacks self-confidence and more than any other one thing a smile reassures them."  -  Andre Maurois
