Things Hosts and Vendors say to sell sell sell !

Sometimes I just have to laugh when listening to the sells pitch they do. This morning I heard Kim say treat the shorts as your uniform !  Woman LOL  The only uniform I ever wore was scrubs when I was a nurse working in the newborn nursery at a Hospital !

Does anybody out there plan on wearing these shorts as a uniform and if so what kind of work do you do? Just  wondering. Also does anybody know the most used phrase that vendors and Hosts say the most?  I have an idea but what do you think? Let's see what everyone thinks just for fun.

It drives me crazy when they say “it’s the only order of the year”. They are saying that one a lot lately.

Last order of the year. Stock up! At least they dropped the buy one for the gift closet. 

i haven't heard that one in a while. Maybe that's a holiday one.

David  "Don't miss out on this opportunity."

 

Mary Beth  "Here's the thing." tied with "Et cetera."

 

Leah  "Ya know, it's interesting."

 

Pat  "That's the beauty of it."

 

Jane  "Daughters, daughters, daughters, daughters, daughters, daughters, daughters, daughters................................."

It can't be easy to have to talk about items multiple times a day, every day that one works.  I seem to use the same phrases multiple times a day in my life, so I'm sure I'd do it even more if I had a tv sales job.  I could never fault any of the hosts repeating things or trying to find new things to say, even if not the most clever.

@Goodie2shoes   In warm climates people do wear shorts 24/7/365, like the rest of us wear jeans.  I imagine it's acceptable in many workplaces. 

 

My son worked at Lowe's and stayed there because they allowed employees to wear shorts and he loved his shorts.  He'd wear them even in the coldest weather.

Re: Things Hosts and Vendors say to sell sell sell !

I totally agree with everyones take  of most used phrases, some I had forgot about. My choice is the phrase "And Again"   It seems like this is a phrase taught in Hosts and Vendor school.  I've heard it said on QVC and HSN over and over again. I don't watch ShopHQ anymore but they probably use that phrase alot there as well.  Thanks everyone that was a good Saturday laugh
