Indecent Proposal?

At work I recently received an email from a saleswoman who works for a vendor we’ve done business with in the past.  She was checking to see if there was any chance we would be interested in renewing the partnership, yadda yadda yadda.  I get phone calls and emails like this from time to time, and I usually ignore them.

This one was a little different though, as she included the line: “Can I offer you any incentives to ensure that this partnership takes place?”

How many carrots can she offer?

How many carrots can she offer?

This line piqued my interest, as it sounded suspiciously like the opening to a porno movie. I quickly dismissed that notion, however, knowing full well that my luck isn’t that good.

However, I was still intrigued: what kind of incentives was she offering?  Are we talking Chick-fil-a-type incentives or a briefcase full of unmarked hundreds-type incentives?

I haven’t gotten back to the lady yet, mostly because the partnership doesn’t make much sense from a business perspective. However, let me know if you have any ideas, I’m not above making an outrageous request

    What makes your posts for me is the ridiculous pictures.

    I had no idea turtles liked carrots so much. In the immortal words of the zombie kid, “I like turtles.”

    Tell her you want a case of Twinkies, a stuffed ALF toy, and a hardhat with a light on the top of it. If she doesn’t do it, tell her there is no deal. If she says ok, tell her that you can’t deal with someone who would give into crazy demands.
