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?”
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.
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.
