Standard

“Sell me this toothbrush and the job is yours” egged John with a smug expression. The position was for a high-paying sales role at a big firm.

Unphased, Tom the prospect quipped “When was the last time you brushed your teeth?”

“This morning after breakfast.”

“How long did that take before heading here?”

“About 5 minutes”

“What about after lunch?”

“The same, dentist’s recommendation”

“And at night?”

“Yes and floss”

“Have you ever missed a day?”

“Nope, not since several cavities developed years ago.”

Tom picked up the toothbrush, studied it carefully for a minute, and quickly snapped it in two by the neck. Holding the brush-head in one hand and pulling out a packet in the other he replied,

“I have pocket toothbrush, lightweight and portable for on-the-go use by the busiest of executives. Retail sales price is a dollar a head but for you, I’ll throw in a pack of mints.”

Tom won the job.
