Salesman’s eyes show split-second of doubt

UK News: A entire profession was left reeling in shock last night after the revelation that a salesman showed a “tiny moment of doubt” in the product he was selling.

salesman shows split -second of doubt

Conservatory salesman Richard Shong, 34, was reportedly feeding an elderly couple some rubbish about “bringing the outside inside” with a UPVC Regency style conservatory when he halted mid-patter for a split second.

“It all happened so quickly – he briefly stopped and his eyes showed a demi-flicker of genuine emotion,” said Edna Dung, from Hampshire.

“Then he carried on telling me about the range of finishes and glazing styles that would suit both my taste and my budget.”

Shong, who has asked the media to respect his privacy at this difficult time, spoke candidly about the event which has caused shockwaves, not only in the conservatory industry, but amongst salespeople across the world.

“Everything was going fine – I was talking about how a good conservatory will add value to any home, then suddenly I couldn’t breathe. It felt like someone was holding an invisible pillow over my face.”

“Everything I was saying seemed wrong and irrelevant – I caught sight of a small bird on a tree outside the office window and it occurred to me that even this tiny, insignificant creature would provide more joy and relevance to the world than I ever could. Thankfully, I then got back to the matter at hand – selling some unnecessary shit to a couple of old pricks.”
