Sales Joke of the Day (April 14th) The Breakdown.

A traveling salesman's car breaks down in the country, so he decides to call on the closest farmhouse.

When the farmer opens the door, the salesman says, "Sir, my car died just up the road. Could I stay here for tonight?"

The farmer says, "Sure, but I have a very handsome son and you'll have to promise not to sleep with him."

"Excuse me," says the salesman, "but I think I'm in the wrong joke."

Moral of the story.   True sales professionals know that in order to succeed at sales you need to be prepared when it comes to traveling on the road.  Keep a "go" bag ready at home in case you ever need to hop a plane without any notice.  If you're a road warrior and put tons of mileage on your own vehicle; make sure to keep it in good shape by getting regular maintenance done.   Last, make sure you subscribe to a good Auto Club like AAA, or the American Automobile Association, so that if your car does break down, your inconvenience will be kept to a minimum and you won't be forced to spend the night with strangers.
