Probably not a totally relevant question yet, but as folks go back to the office I am curious to hear how you all would tackle this.
Back when I was in SMB sales at a large tech company, the local office would put on weekly happy hours that the sales team was encouraged to attend. Regardless of the weekday and timing of the happy hour, our manager expected us to go back upstairs and continue dialing (I once went back up at 4pm on a Friday).
On one such occasion, I went back up to hit the phones and on the first call I got someone on the line. Because of my increased BAC I initially fumbled while introing the call. The prospect hungup.
I quickly packed up my shit and left for the day since calling anyone else was clearly off the table.
Has anyone else been in a situation like this? How would you tackle it?
If yes, what's the worst call you made or email you sent after attending a happy hour?
