Give Them A Shot

I’ve had multiple encounters with various sales people in the last few weeks that have not taken me seriously. It’s funny because it’s their loss, in each case I was more than ready to give them money and make a purchase but they chose not to prioritize.

I don’t have much to say regarding the matter other than I relearned a lesson, that everyone deserves to have their intentions understood.

I remember a lesson my grandpa shared with me when he was a car salesman, he was once working and had a raggedy homeless looking man walked in with a brown paper bag. He looked around the lot at some cars and picked one up and said, “I’ll take that one.” Somewhat surprised, he was taken inside to go over the details.

A number was agreed upon and he pulled out that brown paper bag with enough money to pay for the car.

We’ve all heard “don’t judge a book by its cover” but it’s easy to forget.

So give those people a shot, they might just surprise you.
