Well apparently it worked………..you finally responded. Oh and go ahead give them the other quotes, safe to assume your quoting [product] which we all know how well that works. As you know we are a [different flavor of product] and we choose who we work with not the other way around. Again if you are serious about discussing a partnership then let me know a good time to get on the the phone to discuss.

We may not be a match, hard to say. Thank you for the response.

my response

[redacted sales guy]!

It did work; you must say that to all the businesses! You are correct, I AM looking for [flavor of product he implied was bad] and I agree, we likely will not be a perfect match.

Your PPC guys must be going crazy. They have to hate it that leads who click their carefully made ads can't tell that it's [redacted company] who does the choosing, and not the other way around. Maybe they could reduce their spend, since the customer's shopping process is evidently immaterial. Once they learn the inside sales reps have eliminated the need for attracting customers, it should make budget negotiations much easier.

As requested, I'll keep your number. I can foresee a time when someone I work with insists I put on a nice suit, buy flowers, and beg you to take me back.


please God, make him write back...

Holy shit... Maybe this guy just had a massive post-sugar, post-caffeine crash after not hitting his sales quotient for the eighth week in a row or something... That's all I can think of to explain this correspondence and the previous!

Wait... did someone publish a book like "The Rules" except for business? This totally sounds like that "attract a guy by being an aloof bitch" method.

Oh I just can't yet. I mean, I know I have an obligation to. But man, after this last email, I'm hoping against hope that he breaks, and this goes one of two ways:
1) that he really goes over the edge and says something so offensive that it would mean complete ruin for his and his company's reputation or
2) this goes on almost forever. I mean, if it goes far enough we're talking sky's the limit here: McSweeney's, book deal, radio talk shows. Who knows? This is a real tortured soul here and I might be able to bring his gift to the world.

You are indeed wise, sir, and have more vision than I. I shall await this glorious day with baited breath.
