Prospects say some crazy things. Many times we hear the words the prospect speaks, but the meaning to the prospect is entirely different. Here are a few funny examples of what the prospect actually says and what they really mean:
- Can you send me some information: I really need to get you off the phone. Perhaps you are stupid enough to waste $3 sending me some junk I can throw in the trash
- May I tell him who is calling: If you are another salesperson, I will choke you. If you are one, at least I can make you feel 2 inches tall
- Would you like to be transferred to voicemail: Please leave us a message so we can more easily recognize your voice to screen you out next time
- Looks interesting, let me get back to you: Please leave now, I have important things to do like warm up my coffee
- Please have a seat, he will be with you in a minute: Go sit out there with the rest of the losers. He will see you some time before 2005
- May I ask what this is regarding: You sound like a salesperson. If you are, I am going to dump you so fast your phone will hurt.
- You caught me at a bad time: Please go away and never call back
Thank you for making it clear what people actually think of me when I am calling.
