Ye Olde Play

A sleepy Morrisons in a leafy shire of merry old England.

Me: "Hi, can I have two of those sausages with chips please?"

Assistant: "Is that the three sausage deal?"

Me: "Oh god no, I couldn't do three sausages!"

Assistant: "Well there's the small deal which is one sausage?"

Me: "Here's a cunning plan, I'll have the single sausage deal and buy another sausage separately."

Assistant: "I suppose you could do that."

Me: "Yes, I suppose I could."

Whose Fault?

30 Day Trial

Signed up for a trial of a product promoted by Google. We already have one of the family of services on offer so an integrated addition might be beneficial. Within twenty minutes of the account being created a sales rep was on the phone!

Rep: "How many people will be using the product?"
Rep: "Will you just be using it internally or in conjunction with your customers?"
Rep: "When will you be purchasing the product?"

Now I pride myself on being a pretty diligent salesperson but at least let me take the wrapper off and have few licks before pouncing.
