No Solicitators


My wife sells insurance products to businesses, which sometimes requires in-person “cold calls.”

She stopped in to a business today and asked the woman at the desk if she might speak with the manager.

“Didn’t you see the sign?” the woman asked.

“No. What did it say?”

“‘No Solicitators.'”

Did I mention that at least one of the people in this conversation is not a native English speaker?

“I’m not a solicitator,” my wife said. “I’m here to help your business.”

Happy ending: She did get an appointment to speak with the manager, but she was still unhappy about one thing.

“Oh my god, I can’t believe she called me a solicitator . . .”
