What's the most inappropriate thing a prospect has ever said to you? GO!

In a meeting with the CEO and head of eComm finalising contracts after a lengthy enough sales cycle. The eComm guy was a complete sleazebag but the CEO seemed pretty chill. As we were wrapping up the CEO turns to me,

CEO: "Pity you're not an ugly woman"

Me: "What?"

CEO: "Yeh. If you were an ugly woman Geoff here (ecomm guy) would've tried to fuck you and we would've had this sales cycle and contract wrapped up months ago!"


For context, I am a guy...


Let's hear yours!

I was selling one of our products to a woman (in her 60s) and her daughter (early 30s). I knew they were both prostitutes and thus our price was higher because of additional risk (I sold payment terminals).Β 

They told me they’d give me an amazing time if I’d put them down as a restaurant in the system. Oh and free β€œclub membership” for a year.Β 

I said no.Β

Nothing crazy but had a prospect basically get into conspiracy theory territory levels of talk during our conversations about why he needed our product. Thought big tech and the "liberuls" were going to nuke his IT infrastructure for voting red or something.Β
