I saw this. My man went off and is clearly not cut out for sales, but... I bet everything he said is true and I have to imagine this lady went beast mode on him for something innocuous

Yeah he went and fucked up, but - not a fan of public shaming either. Shitty thing to do by CEO. Two wrongs don’t make a right

If everyone did everything they thought about doing 10x a day… I’d be arrested tbh. Β He cracked and he’s paid the price. I hope it doesn’t follow him forever but it’s gonna suck for a while

RIP to this mans sales career. I can't imagine emailing someone like this.Β

Yeah this is never appropriate.Β 

I had an exec at a large hedge insult me during deal negotiations. I was pissed. I didn't reply. Took a deep breath and vented to my boss. My boss ended up elevating to our VP of Sales who replied back and told them we didn't want their business if this was how they treated people.Β 

The best revenge is living well.

Haha my man just said what we all want to when we catch hell from some Karen that doesn't want to be cold called.

He did however, fuck up. We all want to say it, at one point in our careers.

Homie doesn't have thick enough skin to be in sales.

This is brutal, he's in the wrong entirely, if you can't handle the fuck offs if you're in the wrong gig.

Dude, this is so messed up from the SDRs side. You literally messed up on the one critical skill needed to be good as an SDR(which you somehow lack as a 5 year SDR.. Wtf?) , dealing with rejection.Β 

I've been told to fuck off, that I suck at sales and had prospects straight up just say no and hang up the phone. Literally just move on, why post this shit? This only gives decent BDRs/SDRs a bad name. What did he think was going to happen by sending that message, she'd apologize? Smh just move on.Β

After many years cold calling, I've heard some seriously sick shit, including "fuck off and die I hope your kids get cancer" which seems a bit excessive as a response to a cold call but that's just me. Gotta have thick skin and this poor fella clearly isnt in the right career.

So, most people I know did not plan on becoming a sales person initially, it just happened. So, curious to know how my fellow warriors here ended up in sales anyway ? The more interesting stories the better..!!

When a lead answers the phone for the first time in history only to scream at me to stop calling my first reaction is to laugh really loud. I don't even think about it.
