Sales Joke of the Day (May 4) 'Driving' Revenue Taken Too Far????

A software manager, a hardware manager, marketing manager and a sales manager are driving to a meeting when a tire blows. They get out of the car and look at the problem.

The software manager says, "I can't do anything about this - it's a hardware problem."

The hardware manager says, "Maybe if we turned the car off and on again, it would fix itself."

The marketing manager says, "Hey, 75% of it is working - let's ship it!"

The sales manager says, “Hey, there is a perfect prospect at the bus stop – let’s sell it!”

Moral of the story.   The sales manager's answer to the problem might not always be right but at least it "drives" revenue for the company!
