Ever been asked that? I'm sure I'm the only one. Some of my retorts have been:
"What do you do for a living Mr. & Mrs. Client? Oh I see and how many hours a week? Oh wow, 50. OK so what do you tell your employer when he/she asks you to accept 25 hours of pay for 50 hours of expected effort and results? Oh, you would never agree to that? Hmmm, then can you explain to me why I would?"
"Here's my wife's phone number, if she says it's OK, I'll cut it for you." :)
"Oh I'm sorry our sale ended last week."
"I enjoy food with my meals, so I'll have to pass, but thanks for asking."
"Would you ask for a discount from your surgeon?"
"Well I appreciate you asking, but I'd have to see your prospectus first, if I'm going to be investing MY commission into YOUR house; I'll need to now how my investment's dividends will be paid out?"
and my favorite....
"Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha, ah no but seriously...."
I'm looking forward to your comments: Please share your best come-backs & quips with the rest of us to this "time honored question". :)
