One might think, a consulting company will have sales teams whose members were not poached from ICICI Bank. One would be wrong.
Sales Manager, Consulting Firm(SM): Hi, I just called to follow up on our last telephonic conversation. Have you decided on the budgetary allocation?
Me: No, we are still in the process of evaluating our options and I will let you know once we decide.
SM: Well, this is close to the year end. I suggest you make your options and plans transparent to us so that we will help you with the entire process. This is the year end.
Me: Err? What?
SM: This is the year end. We want to know when you will be closing this. This is the year end.
Me: Hmm, we are still in the process of evaluating our options and I will let you know once we decide.
SM: I will call you next week, on Wednesday, to check the status. Thank you.
