What's your most wild story from being in Sales?

I had an SDR who used to go to the strip club buffet across the street for lunch.


As screwed up as that sounds ive known plenty of salesmen that did that.


I've heard some fucked up stuff from senior sales reps.

One story told was about after work hour parties where the random office hook up was the norm.

Another was when a old timer told the new HR girl that he wanted to crawl under her desk, spread her legs, and wear her like a hat.

Still another was when a sales representative got drunk, drove his customer home, crashed, and ended up killing his customer.

I put forth a lot of effort to find mentors. After hearing these stories I spend just as much energy to stay clear of these ass hats.


Yea to follow on to that was the company he worked for did an aduit of their outside salesmen drivers records. There was more than one with an expired license. The rep that told me the story said those guys had to get their wives to drive them to sales calls.

When a client asked, “do you expect me to be responsible for my signature on a contract?!?”........ the client was a lawyer. Yes, I expect that when you sign a contract, you understand what you’re signing and that you are held responsible for signing it.

I had a very reactive team member who I heard punched his colleague in his face when he stole his lead in the previous company. Few months in, this guy "backstabbed" me and got my position in the company and I left. Future sales trainings started with a quote "Lord is Jesus". He ended up leaving the company few months later as well. He is a Muslim converted into Christianity.

Been buying more things online since pandemic but have been running into decision paralysis when trying to read between all the review sites to compare. What process do you use as part of your decision making? Are there any go-to review sites? So many of these “top 10 product sites” are spam-SEO sites nowadays and Consumer Reports has been inconsistent. For TVs, appliances, tools, etc.
