Let me tell you about that most dishonorable profession - sales. These are the same men and women who as boys and girls were the flibbertigibbets of the playground - full of words, opinions, and in general themselves. It never matters what you may think, they’ve already decided for you: how much of a dinosaur you are for not already knowing about their latest mortgage product, how “life-changing” their shiny new app is, and how badly you need (as if suddenly humankind’s basic necessities included one more item) what they have. To think of the hundreds, even thousands of cubicle farms across this country packed full of warm-bodies with one explicit purpose - “to pad their numbers” just so that they can sleep at night. Forget what “value-add” they peddle, anything that requires the act of selling is not at all important; it’s his ego that’s important, her place among her fellow tribesmen that matters. By answering the phone you’re only contributing to the deadweight loss in society. And don’t worry, you’ll find out sooner or later if whatever it is they’ve cooked up supplants food and water.

This is known as Finance.
