It was 8:30 PM. The day had ended. It was time to go home. The door opened. A man came in. Roughly 25 years old, wearing a blue shirt and faded pair of trousers. He has a terrified look on his face. “May I sit down?” asked the man in a low voice.

Hardly had he finished his sentence when his boss yelled, “No, you may not”.

“You called for me, sir?”

“You haven’t finished your target, why are the numbers so low? You can’t get one conversion in a day and you call yourself a sales executive? If you can’t give me two sales right now, then you are fired. Don’t even bother to show me your face at the end of the day if you don’t get the sales done. Is that clear? It doesn’t matter who you call, but call them a million times until they get frustrated and answer your call and then I don’t care how you do it but convince them.”

“Yes, sir” fumbled the man.

He needed to keep his job. He needed the salary at the end of the month. Due to the pandemic, and all the lockdowns in the country, his mother passed away and his father had lost his job. He was their only hope and he was failing. He decided to give it all that he had got. He picked up the phone and started dialing. Called every lead at least 10 times. And finally got those 2 sales and he survived another day in this jungle they call the market.

40 years of age, a father of 2 children, worked hard all day and came back home at 9:00 PM. It was a rather long day at the office. All he wanted was to have his dinner, spend some time with his family, and go off to sleep. The phone rang, our 25-year-old on the line had called. He was trying to convince the father to buy his product. The father reluctant to have any conversation at that time just hung up. But our sales guy was determined to get 2 sales for the day, so he called again, and again, and again. Eventually, on the 5th call, the father got so pissed that he started to yell at the sales guy.

“Don’t you understand? I do not want your product. You people are so useless, calling me all day trying to sell random rubbish over the phone. It’s all a fraud. Don’t you have a conscience? People like you should be put behind bars for calling us so many times a day. I don’t have time to listen to your rubbish. If you call me one more time, I will lodge a complaint and will take severe action against you.” He hung up the phone.

The father had his dinner with his family and was about to go to sleep when his children pleaded with him to take them for ice cream. The dutiful father could not reason with them so he took them out. At the ice cream shop, the two children were having their ice cream when the father had a strong urge to smoke a cigarette. So he came out of the shop, took out his cigarette but he realized that he forgot his lighter at home. Another man was smoking one right beside him so he offered a lighter as he noticed the father.

They got into conversation introducing themselves. The other man was in his mid-20s wearing a blue shirt and a faded pair of jeans.

“How’s the ice cream here?” asked the guy in the blue shirt.

“They do a pretty good job, my children started nagging so I had to get them. Look, they’re there.” said the father pointing at the children.

“Oh, they’re beautiful”

“Yeah, they are. Thank you.”

Conclusion: The conversation grew as the children started having their second serving. The father really liked the guy in the blue shirt. He thought he was very smart and educated, also had a good sense of humor. Eventually, he got to know they stay in the same locality and made plans to meet up soon as they had a lot in common. Just before leaving, the father asked, “Anyway, what do you do for a living?”

Our guy replied, “Oh, I am into sales. I work for ABC Ltd”
