Ain't that the truth.
One day I was talking to my dad about RV salesman and how disappointed I was in their knowledge of product line. I said "I kind of understand, there are LOTS of brands out there, and LOTS of models/floorplans within those brands. So it's a lot to know."
He didn't skip a beat and retorted with "You're a CPA right? How many words are in the Internal Revenue Code? Probably a LOT harder to know all that tax stuff, right? Why shouldn't we expect salespeople to be professionals too?"
Truth is I know a few salespeople who are true professionals and know their lines VERY well. But unfortunately they seem to be the exception...
