Ain’t it the truth
Having also worked in pharma, the last line from this Lindsay quote definitely rings a bell:
Wouldn’t the sales force like something a little more, well, mature and dignified? Maybe something…scientific? My supervisor laughed and said, “You haven’t met the sales force yet, have you?”*
So, I write colorful postcards congratulating the reps on being Hot Chili Peppers and Monopoly Moguls (seriously). I make up endless bean bag tossing games and dopey puns. It’s like teaching Montessori to drug dealers.
