A salesman named Dan and his wife Eileen, had just entered their very posh suite at the Hyatt. A bottle of champagne , two fancy wine glasses and a crystal dish filled with chocolate covered strawberries were by the bed. It was their wedding night. Pulling a very sexy negligee out of her suitcase, Eileen was startled when Dan tossed her his pants and told her to put them on.
She tried but they fell down in a pool around her ankles. "Honey, I
can't wear your pants," Eileen protested, coming around the bed to hand
them back to him.
"D-a-r-n straight, and don't you forget it," ordered the new husband, "I'm the man and I wear the pants in this family."
Eileen slipped out of her panties and tossed them to Dan. "Put these on darling," she asked sweetly.
Of course Dan couldn't pull the little piece of lace past his knees. "I can't get into your pants, Eileen," he complained.
"That's right," she snapped. "And it's going to stay that way until you change your d-a-r-n attitude!"
Moral of the story. True sales professionals know that their spouse
is the key to their sales success. If there is trouble on the home
front, you can't be fully effective at work. In today's economy where
both spouses have to work; there is no time to argue about who wears the
pants in the family. You both have to! Success in today's economy
requires a true partnership; both spouses contributing on the home
front and in the field.
