What is the most absurd objection you’ve been given?

Curious as to what others have been coming across lately. I have found work from home to make clients be more aggressive than usual....

“Oh, no thank you, I’m just not in the right headspace for a cold call right now” 

Not sure how to even start to reply to that.

I'd ask him to define "over" - might get him talking more

I remember when I used to sell cars for VW. the 2013 golf 2.5L had w 5 cylinder engine.

I was on a test drive with a father and daughter and I let them know that the 5 cyl was a nice compromise between a 4 and a 6. A little more fuel efficient than a 6. More power than a 4.

The father dismissed the car immediately after I told him that.

”I don’t believe in 5 cylinder engines.” And refused to elaborate.

Um, okay...?

We like your proposal and are recommending it to the board, however this will not be a fast process 🙄

Hard to argue that, for sure.
