Are there any people in the furniture sales business? In my new project, one of the main characters is a furniture salesman. I'd love any inside jokes, crazy stories, or just a description of a typical day.

I knew a guy that worked as a factory rep for a manufacturer of reclining chairs. In one particular region, sales were dismal. He made punchboards and stuck a $50 in one, or maybe each I don't remember, of the punch outs. Each time a retail salesperson would sell one of his products, he'd let them have a go at the punchboard. He claimed his brand became dominant in that market.
