ACTUAL CORPORATE DAD CONVERSATION I OVERHEARD ON BART

This dad was on the phone for 30 min, and is now flirting with a woman at least 20 years his senior- this woman seems kind, docile and way too good for him...though he might just be trying to close another deal.
  1. Was that our deal or was Nancy just beatin' the string?
  2. I'm perfectly okay taking the $1.9 million but we don't necessarily need to.
  3. But I also don't wanna step on anybody's toes.
  4. If he replies to us your were he originators of the supply chain, and she can say, Oh no- that represents x percent of the deal. Right?
  5. We have to talk to Sales/ops about how much goes in each bucket.
  6. In a less than ideal word we have somebody acting as an arbiter that decides what goes to what. But that's in a less than ideal world.
  7. I think a personal conversation from you would be good, so to reduce them saying- was it us or was it them, you know?
  8. I don't want this to be some sales campaign she gets a spiff on.
  9. Well she might want a quarter spiff- and that might be a bigger issue.
  10. You get where I'm going with this.
  11. Thanks Chris, it's just a bit complex.
  12. See you at the office.
