How do we do it, how do we do it, how do we do it, how do we do it
We need your business, we're going out of business
We'll give you the business
Get on the business end of our going-out-of-business sale.
— Tom Waits, Step Right Up
"Like most of you, I grew up in a place where every local used car dealer and mattress retailer was crazy. It was the only way to explain their insane prices! They each produced commercials bragging about their mental disorders, and I remember one pawn shop owner in my area who chainsawed furniture in half who probably wasn't lying. These commercials taught us many things, and all of them were this: If you want to be successful in sales, you need to stop paying attention to the warnings on modeling glue."
