I boarded the train just minutes ago, and at the very first stop, a strange guy got on board.
He has an L.L. Bean style tote bag with him. Inside, he has hero rolls in plastic wrap. I know, I know…”See something, say something.” Trust me, I thought about it.
Anyway, he started off with the traditional “Good morning ladies and gentleman.”
“Here we go,” I thought to myself.
So he reaches into his bag and pulls out some of the rolls. He says he is here to ask for donations to feed the homeless. The bread he carries is free to anyone who needs it.
So I’m thinking to myself, is he trying to sell these rolls to us? I guess not. They’re just a prop. It worked though. He even had “Tax ID” papers clearly made in Word.
Anway he was selling crazy….and people were buying.
Live from the subway, back to you in studio…
