Default 100 Years Old Man Still Sells Chevrolet Cars

This guy is awesome. His sales experience must be unbelievable.





From the article:
Meet Derrel Alexander, Chevrolet salesman at White’s Mountain Motors in Casper, Wyoming. He’s on the job every morning at 8am and leaves at 3pm, Monday through Saturday. And he just turned 100-years-old earlier this month. Suddenly we’re all feeling a bit lazy here. Mr. Alexander has been selling Chevys most of his life, and Automotive News just did a recent profile on him, noting that he’s outlived most of his loyal customers. In fact, it is their children and grandchildren who are now his regulars.

Now that's what I call a good work ethic. I think we could all learn from him. May God bless him.

The stories he could tell about manufacturer kickbacks, under-the-table rebates, insurance premium gouging, interest rate manipulation, and on and on.
