A few weeks ago a saleswoman came into my office to do a lunch and learn for a faucet company she represents.  She was touting the benefits of the faucets; their durability, their good looks, all the good applications in which to use them, and especially the water saving characteristics.  As she was making a good example of the water saving characteristics, she told the story about her fifteen year old son taking all those long showers.  "He'll take these twenty minute showers  and I'll ask him why he takes so long, and he'll just say for the first ten minutes he's just standing there.  And so with this little plastic limiter, we saved 120 bucks a year."  I wanted to be like, "come on lady....seriously?  you just discredited everything you just said with that statement.  He was just standing there?"

  1. I can't believe you had to sit through that. I had an awkward experience with a faucet rep before too, not as bad as that though.
