Bragging on The Sweetie:

She was training a new group of sales agents yesterday, and was telling them, "If another agent is talking to a potential client, you don't interrupt. You don't comment about the weather to the client, you don't give candy to the client's kids, you don't give a treat to the client's dogs..."

Someone who'd been a smarty-pants all day interrupted with, "Can you comment about how hot the client's wife is?"

Her reply, which was a perfect combo of instruction and threat: "And that's the last time you'll ever make a remark like that while you're working for us."

I'm going to remember that and use it when necessary.  :)

Let's hope he takes her at her word, and that we don't see him on the Professional Darwinism thread!

Follow-up:

The next day, via a text exchange, "Joey" told The Sweetie that he quit, and he had some important observations about the company that he'd tell her for $200. She declined. (He quit because he needed cash faster than their commission structure allows.)

In a later phone conversation about how to return his gear, he said, "Well, I'll tell ya!" and provided two astute, but useless, facts about how the company works. (Astute because he was pretty clever to figure it out. Useless because she already knew them.)

He should hang out his shingle "Ego for hire!" He certainly needs some "seasoning" if he's going to survive in the workplace.

I have a feeling this guy is going to go through a lot of jobs.  As Bugs Bunny would say "what a maroon!".
