Tool of the Day Award

I'm a consultant for some, er, legal software packages that shall remain nameless... From time-to-time they send me leads. So and so asked us for a demo recently, follow up and see if you can close the deal for us... Sometimes I like these E-mails because they're like found money. Other times it's annoying because they're students downloading the software and there is no way they'd ever be a client, they work in a larger law firm and aren't the decision makers in buying the software and why the hell am I doing this, I don't work for them?! You're the sales rep. Earn your commission on your own! Anyway, a rep from this very well known company E-mails me today and sends me a lead from Windsor... WINDSOR! Hullo! I live in TO! let's look at a map of southern Ontario, shall we? NO WAY IN HELL I'M GOING 4 HOURS AWAY! I don't even like going to Scarborough! I sent him back an E-mail saying that was out of my realm and he said a phone call wouldn't hurt. HURT?! is he paying my long distance? Silly Americans.
