n.— «The salesman is always looking for the customer (they call them “ups”) with an 800 credit score and a burning need for a new car. A customer who’ll pay full sticker price and buy Lojack and an extended warranty. That’ll be a nice invoice, the salesman thinks, maybe even a “pounder,” a deal with a $1,000 commission. And tonight this salesman will take his family out to dinner regaling them with stories of how he expertly closed the deal.» —“Buyers Are Liars: Selling Metal in the Internet Age” by Philip Reed Edmunds.com: Inside Line May 16, 2005.
