    Here’s what happen I went to a day care to drop off a proposal. Before I went in I ate so ribs for lunch. So I go in ask for the owner thinking I’m just going hand the proposal to her she comes out and tell me to sit so we can go over it. I was please so for twenty min I’m telling all the things we can do for her and listing to her needs. When it all over I shake her hand and leave . This is were it get good I go to my truck look in the mirror and see I have barbecue sauce on my face and meat stuck in between my front teeth . I’m thinking there goes that account. Anyone else had something like this happen.:confused::hammerhead:

    Ok...let's break this down - logically,...but in a positive way. She sees the bar bq sauce on your face,...She thinks he eats well....she thinks in order to eat well he must be successful. In order to be successful, you must do good work. Account sold. :drinkup:

    Give her a call back and thank her for her time, and explain how embarrassed you were when you got back to your truck. She'll probably laugh and you might make a friend and a sale!!

    Nothing like your story, but I've run bids with stickers stuck to my shirt from my 5 yr. old daughter. Usually when a prospective client asks about them, it strikes up a nice conversation, and shows I'm still human (and possibly reminds them I have a family to feed?)
