The Lobby Lizard
Note: this story
reflects how it was in the old days, when manufacturer's reps swarmed
around large electronics companies, cold-calling everyone in the
lobby phone book. Today with the internet, business is much easier,
and sites like Microwaves101 can help you locate individuals who
are truly interested in your products and not waste anyone's time,
on either side of the supply chain.
You've been at work for
only two weeks. The Boss doesn't even know your name. Then suddenly
the phone rings. Must be a wrong number, you have no friends.
Wrong number? Worse than
that, it's a microwave vendor, a lobby lizard. He's out in the
lobby, he has a thousand catalogs, and he wants to know how many
"asynchronous phase-locked inverters" you will be needing.
You'll recognize him, he's the fat dude sweating heavily in the
Don't panic! Tell him you
are busy, but might be able to do lunch. That way, you will be
able to order a few cocktails while he bores you with his product
line. Don't improve his self-esteem by thanking him for lunch,
the rest of us don't want you to raise the bar.
Then, deep-six all of the
paper catalogs and CDs he gave you on the way back to your office,
and return to Microwaves101.com, where we will put you in touch
with only the best vendors (hey, they took us to Happy Hour!)
