After the 80 billionth call on my cell phone from people attempting to extort more money out of me to pretend to sell my worthless timeshare, I have this to say about sales people.

Honest sales people, who make money by helping people buy something they actually need, want, and are looking for? Totally fine profession, one I have done in the past and will continue to do.

But sales people who attempt to cold call people and talk them into something they don't need which is pretty much a scam? They are scum. I realize that it's a tough world out there and everyone is scrambling to make a buck. But don't take a job calling people on the phone to try to scam them. There are so many other ways to make money. Do something honest. I tried telemarketing once, for two weeks when I was 18, and I'd rather muck out horse stalls than ever do it again. High pressure sales is shit. It's just shit.

Sometimes I really hate this consumerism driven culture. Buy buy buy, sell sell sell. I *hate* high pressure selling, I hate doing it, and I hate having it done to me.

AMEN. I spent half my time in Vegas dodging these people, and then one of my friends was trying to push me into it! Argh!
