Why did the man in business attire suddenly drop his pants in the middle of the “B” Concourse at Atlanta’s international airport? That’s a question many of us in the terminal were pondering yesterday. I decided not to stick around to see the outcome of his odd choice as there are some things I just don’t need to see. And this was one of them.
Most of us avoid engaging in this type of public display of awkward behavior since our common sense guides us in making choices. This same common sense should be our guiding light when selling, as well. For example:
Am I accusing sales organizations of lacking common sense? In some cases, yes. In others, it is merely a lack of application of this trait. What I’m suggesting is if you have it, use it when you sell. If you don’t…well, never mind. I highly doubt anyone lacking common sense kept reading when I brought up this issue at the start. Maybe they’re related to Mr. Dropped Drawers in Atlanta.
