Death of a Salesman

A real estate agent got a bit chatty yesterday, proceeding to tell me why he voted against Mr. Obama in 2008, but for the President yesterday.

 

“You’ve known me a long time, right? I can sell anything,” he said.  “So I know the tricks of the trade. And I know when a guy is trying to use them to con me.”

 

We talked a bit more, moving onto the hurricane nightmare scenario around our parts.  But then Agent Super Seller returned to the topic of why he disliked Romney so much.

 

“You see, a good salesman knows how to distract people. Bad kitchen? Show buyers the scenic view of the backyard through the windows. Have a tiny bedroom? Take out half the furniture before you show the house. So when a guy tries to distract you from his tax returns, I know he’s screwed the IRS. When he’s for whatever you’re for at that moment, it’s like me telling the buyers they have the cutest baby ever just to make the sale, even if I’m lying through my teeth!”
