Sales Joke of the The Day (April 29) Selling "Blind."

A nun is undressing for a bath and while she's standing naked, there's a knock at the door. The nun calls, "Who is it?"

A voice answers, "A blind salesman."

The nun decides to get a thrill by having the blind man in the room while she's naked so she lets him in.

The blind salesman walks in, without batting an eye looks straight at the nun and says, "Uhhhh, well hello there, I can see you enjoy your privacy in this lovely home and I was wondering if I could interest you in some blinds for your living room window.   You wouldn't want any of your neighbors catching a glimpse of you in an embarrassing situation now would you?"

Moral of the story.    Formal sales training and all the role playing in the world cannot possibly prepare you for every situation you'll "see" in the real world!  Like any good boy scout; professional sales people need to always be prepared for the unexpected!

"In faith there is enough light for those who want to believe and enough shadows to blind those who don't."    -  Blaise Pascal
