How the Hell Would You Sell This Load of Fertilizer?

by MadFatMan    Jan 19, 2012, 7:06 PM

Yes, Mr/Mrs Potential Customer, We have AMAZING devices that can keep you connected, entertain you, inform you, and ALMOST replace the need to have a traditional lap/desk top.

3G/4G hotspot/tethering capabilities, Pandora in your car or at the gym, YouTube, Netflix , download thousands of data hungry applications that require a CONSTANT connection to the internet, picture/video mail, VPN capabilities, push corporate email, online gaming and so on. Feel free to use it as you would your home LAN connection through your wired ISP.

So, the customer would ask, "Pardon me, Mr AT&T Salesperson, what about this tiered data, what is a gigabyte? You say this device can flip and do tricks and do all these wonderous things but is there a catch, a price, a penalty or a GOTCHA! attached to this Pandora box of wonderment? Please tell me please as I am a savy consumer who trust all that you say kind sir"

The salesperson replies. "fear not, you highly intelegent customer, with your green plaid shorts, saffron polo shirt and silver hair. You my friend will NEVER exceed this generous data limit. As I am sure of it. Trust me, sign here without delay, take your devices, pay my commission, never bother reading and be on your merry way.
