Sales Joke of the Day (April 30) The Smart Phone?

A salesman, picks up his iPhone, dials his home and a strange woman answers.  The salesman asks, "Who is this?"

"This is the maid," answers the woman.

'We don't have a maid," says the salesman.

"I was hired this morning by the lady of the house," replies the maid.

The salesman says, "Well, this is her husband.  Is she there?"

"She is upstairs in the bedroom with someone who I thought was her husband," replied the maid.

The salesman, now furious, yells at the maid, "Listen would you like to make $50,000?"

The maid replies, "What would I have to do?"

"I want you to get my gun from the desk, and shoot the witch and the jerk she is with," replies the salesman.

The salesman hears several footsteps moving away from the phone.  He hears screaming, and then two gunshots, and then several steps as the maid comes back to the phone."

"What do I do with the bodies?" asks the maid.

The salesman says, "Throw them in the swimming pool."

Puzzled, the maid answers, "But you don't have a swimming pool."

A long pause and the salesman says, "I'm sorry, I must have dialed the wrong number."

Moral of the story.  True sales professionals pride themselves on their data accuracy.  Having an inaccurate phone number on your smartphone could cost you, or someone else, dearly.  So do your part to help make the sales profession safer, only maintain and distribute accurate contact information.
