Salesman, A Decisive Moment
After my wife and I were pulled from the street into a shop for a pitch on some wrinkle remover cream, I see the stand-by salesman move to the front of the shop. His pitch is heard by vacationers of Key West, but most try to avoid the calls to action. I anticipated the next target, just as he did. I waited to see reactions, evidence of eye contact or acknowledgement that this product is truly the answer to the problem with bags under the eyes. The little girl can’t avoid him, she hasn’t yet learned to keep eyes forward to avoid the possibilities of being pulled into an unwanted sales pitch. Obviously, I haven’t either, I was inside the store.
