“Hello?” said Johnny as he answered the door.
“Hello, sir! May I come in?” asked the suited salesman with a briefcase in his hand.
“Why? I have something that will change your life, and you ask why?” replied the salesman.
“What could I possibly need?”
“Only the product that everyone needs but doesn’t know they need.”
“You’re not making sense here,” replied Johnny.
“You’re right,” replied the salesman. “I’m not here to make cents. I’m here to make dollars. You are a very smart man. Now… may I come in?”
“No!” replied Johnny. “You can’t come in! I don’t even know what you’re selling.”
The salesman then pushed his way into Johnny’s home.
“Just give me a few minutes of your time, and I’ll tell you exactly what I’m selling,” replied the salesman.
“I’ll give you one minute to get out of my house!” replied Johnny.
“You’re a business man, right?”
“Right,” replied Johnny. “But that’s not the point!”
“Do you have trouble keeping your work separated from home?”
“Yeah, you might say that.”
“Aren’t you tired of carrying around the weight of all of those papers?”
“Yes!” replied Johnny. “But what does that have to do with anything? You’re stressing me out!”
“You need stress relief, right?”
“You want to become more organized, don’t you, kind sir?”
“Yes!” replied Johnny. “You’re right about all of that. Now… will you please step out of my house?”
“I will after one more question,” replied the salesman.
“I don’t have time for one more question!” replied Johnny. “I have to get organized for work, and I have to do it now!”
“Exactly!” replied the salesman. “And if you were already organized, you would’ve had more time for this very conversation. But don’t worry! I have to the answer to your problem right here!”
The salesman held up his suitcase, and opened it up. The inside of it was empty.
“Look at all of these marvelous compartments to help organize everything for your working needs!”
“That’s what you came to sell me?” replied Johnny outraged. “Get out of here!”
“And it can be yours for…”
“I know how much it costs!” replied Johnny.
“Perfect!” replied the salesman. “Now I know you’re interested! You really did your research, didn’t you, sir?”
“No! That’s not it!” yelled Johnny. “What makes you think that you can sell one of those suitcases to me?
“Only because I’m the best!”
“Well, even if you are the best, I still can’t buy it!” said Johnny.
“And why is that?”
“Because I run this suitcase selling business from home, and you’re one of my hired on salesmen! That’s why!” said Johnny. “Now get out of here!”
