A Salesman's Dilemma
Authored by Chuck Keys
Today is the day.
Today is my day.
I am going to do it.
All of it,
No one can stop me today,
Not even my dog demanding a walk,
Nor a service-needy client.
If the President of the United States calls, sorry, I'm too busy.
I have an appointment.
Shower, shave, brush my teeth, floss, comb my hair and get dressed.
Suit and shirt are pressed and clean underwear too.
Shoes are polished, money in my wallet.
The car washed and gassed up.
Yep, definitely ready, now.
Okay, I'm on the way...
Should be there, sooner or later,
Traffic is not too bad.
Hope I'm not late,
Early is okay too.
But this is important,
Need to be prompt and alert.
Here's the address. (in nice office building)
Ah, here's suite 100. I'll just walk in.
"Yes, I'm here to see Mrs. R...,"
"And she is expecting me."
Oh, we're sorry, but Mrs. R.. had an emergency,
She's out of the office all day.
Do you want to re-schedule?
