Just back from a sales meeting and thought I’d share with you a few key phrases I overheard during one of the presentations. I was a little confused about what they meant, so I took a stab* at translating them:
“The turkey’s on the table” — If you watch less of the Today show and work harder, fatty poultry products will magically appear in your kitchen/bonus check.
“There’s still meat on the bone” — Take your clients to lunch to discuss business opportunities and eat the steak off of their plates.
“Like shooting fish in a barrel” — Um, go attack harmless life forms with no chance of escape…because you can?
Thank God I heard at least one “go after the low-hanging fruit” because, frankly, I was concerned about everyone’s sodium intake and cholesterol.
*no forks were used to stab this blog post, only my caffeine-deprived wit
(I think I need to stop at the store tonight and pick up the fourth season of The Office on dvd.)
