Meeting with sanitary pad.................

There was this girl that i got to know of during one of my sales visits to one of my customers sometimes last month, i had a short chat with her since her boss was not around. Then she told me that she was only working there on a part-time basis and she had another business that she told me that she was so zealously carrying out, and she told me if i could be interested.

She suggested that we meet up sometimes so that she could divulge details on her business. i gladly agreed because it is my natural trait not to decline any business propositions.

She called, appointment fixed and venue selected. The place was packed with lunch time crowd, i could not spot her at once, she waved for me after which.

After some exhange of pleasantries, she was right down on business. She told me she was currently involved with a MLM company supplying ladies sanitary pads. I was aghast with her action when she drew out bags of sanitary pads comprised few other brands and her company's brand as she laid them on the coffee table, at this point we managed to attract some curious stares from other patrons.

She asked me if she could perform some demostrations on her products, i was hesitant but then again, i was there staring at the bags of sanitary bags infront of me, i had no choice but to concede.

Then the drama unfolded, she began with some funny questions like did i know any sanitary brand name, did i know what brand did my wife use, did i know how much it cost for a piece of sanitary pad, did i know how many pieces would a lady change the sanitary in a day when she experienced menses cycle, did i know what matarials were used in manufacturing the pads and the last question was da bomb, " would i feel ashamed selling sanitary pads?"

I could sense that there were still some funny stares flying at my direction, when she tore apart a "K" brand and her own brand of sanitary pads respectively, she asked me did i see the differences , i hurriedly said yes yes yes and when she asked me was i convinced that her brand of sanitary pads were so good, again hurriedly i said yes yes yes with the intention of killing off the demostration the soonest possible.

Finally, i told her that i had to go and pick my Jovial up from school at 2.30PM and i told her that i would call her if i were to be interested. All the pads were packed and i was ready to go.

P/S : The knowledge in the pads blew my mind

  10. Yup, I had a friend who had another friend doing the same thing. But she was less aggressive. She didn't show me her sanitary pads, just he note pad.

    Some people just want to push for sales without proper selection. She deserves a pad on the back.
