I had a Sales Mgr at Oracle that showed us that Clip at the beginning of every quarter

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW, what a RIDE !!"

Eh, that scene is kinda lame. What movie is that? I see a big banner for Rio Rancho. Is that referring to the town in New Mexico?

Any "true salesmen" at Harlem Furniture or some Used car lot on Ogden Avenue maybe, outside of that, this has about as much to do with being a good salesman as knowing how to avoid curbs helps someone open a bar.

That video might not make it seem like it has to do with being a good salesman, but I can tell you from over 4 years of car sales experience, that's a pretty accurate view of how management can treat their employees to try to get better sales numbers.

There was a car sales movie that came out, Suckers, that was the most accurate portrayal of the car business that you will ever see. I watched the movie with alot of the guys I sold with (kinda like in Boiler Room watching Wall Street), and we all thought that the writer of that movie must have been a manager at our dealership at one time.

"will the porter with the yellow yacket please come to the showroom"

Anyone that has ever sold at a real dealership, not those no pressure losers at Best Buy...(oops, I meant Carmax) is missing out on a great movie. If you haven't sold at a dealer you'll think that movie is rediculous and total bullshit.

Suckers is the most accurate portrayal of the car business ever made.
