    Isn’t the act of forcing one’s meat package on an unwilling victim a case of attempted rape?

    Those meat salesmen get pretty high pressure. Not so much when you step outside to speak with them while wearing a pistol on the hip.

    It’s called a “one-call close” in the sales trade, which means you don’t get a second chance so it doesn’t matter if you piss people off with your tactics.
