No more politics. For today only.
A young man I occasionally mentor was discussing ways to close a sale. Wanted an example so I told him the King and Bunny story.
Renton, WA once had an appliance story, “King and Bunny’s” owned by, strangely enough, by King and Bunny.
I needed to replace our kitchen stove, a cheap builder’s special that was a P.O.S. and an ongoing irritant to the S.O.
King had me landed on a replacement. I was being awkward and negotiating the lowest possible price.
King. “I’m only making $20 now! Can I at least go home tonight and tell Bunny I made us $20?"
Shortly, the range was in the back of my pickup. I had no idea I could be shamed so easily.
As a habit, I try to poke fun at myself because I am too intense and focused. My sister calls it over thinking. That also explains my blog title.
When everyone is laughing at you, join the laughter.
