Souvenir Jewelry

Yesterday, I went to lunch with customers. Ten of them. And we ate at a local barbeque place.

The restaurant filled up. I looked around, and I knew someone at every table - they were all salespeople. And none of them were with customers - they were with fellow co-workers. I had the only customers in the place. Craziness. That doesn't happen often! My customers were teasing me about running for mayor.
After I dropped the customers back at their office, I went to my office to ready for 1:30 p.m. appointment. Picking up two co-workers, we're driving out of our parking garage. I turn to them and say, "Can y'all smell barbeque? That's what we ate today, and I swear, that's all I can smell." They assured me they couldn't smell anything, and off we drove to the 1:30 appointment. We get into the VP's office, and conduct our meeting. Everything went well, and we returned to the office. 
I get to my desk, check my emails. I'm returning a call on speaker phone, and look down at my desk, and catch something peripherally. There is a small 1/8" piece of brisket on my chest. 
I guess I'd been wearing it as a badge of honor for the last 2 hours. 
Oh, no, you didn't, you say. 
Oh, yes, I did. 
I think the sale was successful. Who says aromatherapy doesn't work on my customers?


  1. Hahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!! Oh, my goodness, that's a great way to reel them in! I am going to be laughing about this the rest of the day...

  2. With women's fashion accessorizes today, I would have thought it was a pennant.

  3. Hope you weren't try to sell a vegetarian.

    But that's probably not much of a risk in the heart of Texas, is it?

  4. (found ya.,,,need to get you relinked). Now THAT was comedy...i guess the point is you didn't ask if they could SEE bbq, just SMELL it....heh heh...perhaps earrings for girls who are trying to hook a man??? eau de bbq!


You know you have SOMETHING to say, so spit it out! I love comments!
