Today, I had my first job interview. The manager asks me to sell him his pen. Thinking I'm all smart, I reenact the scene from the Wolf of Wall Street and say, 'Write down your name'. He calmly reaches into his drawer, takes out another pen and writes his name down. He then looks at me and laughs. FML

No it wasn't. The correct answer is to ask her questions a long the lines of "how long have you been in the market for a pen?" Or " what kind of pen are you looking for?". Then use her answers to try and sell her the pen.

Might if been better if he compared the pens and gave reasons why the one he wants to sell is superior, or just try to sell him a second pen.

Hey if it's a pen they'll be writing their name with, they're going to want one that looks good when doing so. Like the gel point or fine tipped pens. If you got a business going you'll want an impressive signature :D
