Salesmen and Dogs are not allowed!!

This is what you see in most of the so called housing and many commercial complexes.

Is the sales person such a pushy character that everyone wants to shoo him away?

May be not! But this makes one think why such a character assassination of Sales person being done day in and day out in our society.

As per Robert Louis Stevenson Scottish novelist, poet, travel writer and author of 'Treasure Island', wrote 'Everyone lives by selling something' a full 100 year back.

If this is true then every human being is equivalent to dog!!

The statement "Salesmen and Dogs are not allowed",if you probe further you will come to know why such a comparison is being done between the most faithful and most intelligent animal on the earth.

The inherent phobia inside a human being's psyche of being bitten by a dog and his pocket being bitten by the Salesman is an accepted fact of life!!

The onus of eradicating such an unacceptable comparison between a dog and a Sales man lies with the Sales man himself.

The fear of losing money without been given the value for the same, getting sold something he does not need, is what makes Sales man a suspicious character.

Does this mean only Salesman need to change his approach?

The society also owes an answer "Can they live without a Sales man?"

Can the society live without being cajoled,coxed,flattered,admired ?
