If you’re on Twitter, you may know that they have this thing called #FF (Follow Friday) and I’m always flattered when somebody mentions @RainMakerMaker on their #FF, but as you know, I don’t work much on Friday, so I often miss them. Here’s my idea….
How about if we screw with the Twitter world, but do it with a Fun Friday post? The post will be silly, or off color, and definitely not serious, but (and this is important) will have a sales lesson in it.
I’ll start. This one comes from a good friend of mine.

This is my neighbor:
She’s single…She lives right across the street. I can see her house from my living room.
I watched as she got home from work this evening.
I was surprised when she walked across the street and up my driveway.
She knocked on my door … I rushed to open it.
She looks at me, and says, “I just got home, and I am so horny! I have this strong urge to have a good time, get drunk, and make love all night long!
Are you busy tonight?”
I immediately replied, “Nope, I’m free… I have no plans at all!”
Then she said, “Good! In that case, could you watch my dog?”
So, how many salespeople think they have a sale but wind up watching a competitor have all the fun?
So, your mission, should you accept it is to Tweet this post with the #FF hashtag. If you want some notoriety, comment before you do. Then they’ll probably read your comment as well as the post.
