The guy is getting on my nerves.
He wears at least half a suit, sometimes a tie, depending on what he figures is appropriate for the appointment. He always says with a wink that he is actually a technician that only dresses as a salesman, and he is almost right. He experiments with what shirt to wear. Sometimes he compares himself with an engineer or an architect, but only if the person he's talking to isn't either because that would imply the same qualification. He lets his arms hang loosely beside himself, avoiding negative body language. He smiles at people and greets as many of them as possible. He has been in the business for many years and isn't it moving so fast, it's like three times regular human time. He has done everything at least once before, he knows every company in the world at least by name even if he can't quite place it and he knows at least one company that faces the exact same challenges. He figures it's a great match and there is an urgent call to action. He listens intently, nods all the time and looks people in the eye all the time. Work is a fascinating and interesting challenge to him and he really looks forward to working together. It isn't really a client-kind of relationship to him, more of a partnership with common goals that absolutely don't collide with each other. His colleagues are professionals. He has had all the hobbies there are for some minuscule fragment of time, he likes to talk about sports or cars as much as the person sitting in front of him. He doesn't have strong opinions on anything he sees around him, rather there are many advantages and disadvantages that require consideration to make an informed decision. He understands frustration with technology and would never imply it's due to false expectations or ignorance. He does not consume fluids and no thanks for the coffee, but he's just had one. It is clear to him that all involved parties are sensible adult people that only need to talk to each other and everything will be figured out. He has an unshakable understanding for the preservation of processes and habits and absolutely recommends the least disruptive approach. He is positive that something can be arranged. He plans ahead, always solves problems before they become serious. He always says how redundancy is as important in personal as it is in machinery. He understands completely. He knows exactly one thing more than the person he talks to.
I hate him and I wish he would leave, but he is one of the fake persons that allow for the purchase of food.
