Any of you taking shots or pounding beers when cold calling?  I'm thinking of implementing this in the most professional of ways of course.

Drinking and dialing.  I'll crack a beer or two every once in a while on an evening of calling.  I find just loosening the tie makes me unwind more than a cold one.  The cold one always tastes good though.

I still can't figure out why people insist on performing a duty that is so unappealing.  If you need to intoxicate yourself to minimize the pain - don't do it.

Well, if Vick is suspended, you could bet on some dogfights I guess...


Otherwise, root for the Seahawks!

Wait, I just gave my money to a guy in Nigeria who said the king or president or whatever the hell they have there needs it to pay of a small debt so he can get his hundreds of millions worth of gold back.  I should expect a very handsome reward of $5,000,000 soon I am told.

Snaggle...Alcohol sure loosens the tongue. And it makes u take rejection. Here in the Netherlands(Holland) weed is legal as well. Cigers ... a good brand can make u more sociable as well. I hope that helps.



Just doo it in MODERATION. Pace urself @ 3glasses of wine the first hour & then 1 every hour!
