OK, so I'm supposed to go into a meeting at 1400 CST with some big-shot clients. The boobalicious sectretary gave me a "VIAGRA" pen a couple of weeks ago. The "VIAGRA" name is very obvious on the clip. Should I have this pen in the meeting?

I'm so gonna get my smart ass fired one day for shit like this!

ETA: Poll now ready for action. No pun intended.

What kind of clients? Your line of work? I need to know. Otherwise, I'm voting MARPAT.

Do it. If you have an Enzyte pen, offer it to one of your bosses...

These guys are from a MAJOR engineering company and I am the manager of Engineering Services for a key power plant component supplier.

I have a General Dynamics pen that is seriously 7.5" long and about 3/4" in diameter, its also electric purple. I use it whenever I'm meeting with my boss's boss as a joke, since we do lots of business with them.

That sounds like a serious job where you should be concerned with how you are perceived. It also sounds as though you are representing your company.

And you haven't done it yet?

Done.
Link Posted: 3/17/2005 10:25:52 AM EST
Tell everybody at the meeting that you have lead in your pencil and are looking for an opportunity to use it.
Link Posted: 3/17/2005 10:26:41 AM EST
No fucking way!!

too risky.

It could go over well..... but more likely to impress upon them that you are either a limp-dicked rep, or too horny to be around their wives.

either way, you lose.

I was in equipment sales for over two decades. Most of my customers were engineers. Very, very few engineers showed signs of having a personality, let alone having a sense of humor.

That's nothing, my Cialis pen actually gets an erection


I'm not kidding

I'm pretty sure you aren't allowed to pursue engineering if you have a sense of humor. They test you for one before you're allowed to declare it as your major. If at any time during your education you are caught smiling or laughing you are kicked out of the program.

One day my receptionists husband came to visit and I showed him my drug rep pen collection. He begged like a little kid for my viagra pen.

The following Monday the receptionist, all red faced, told me the story how he pulled it out in front of everybody after church for something they had to sign. To top it off it was all my fault.

I did it. No comments. I think it's because engineers never look up from the floor.

Q: How can you spot an extroverted engineer?
A: He looks at your shoes when he talks to you.

Yes funny. But you could be considered an ASSHAT by potential clients and that's never good.
These people should feel like their best interest is being seen to by a serious professional.
Not someone who has erectile dysfunction.

just make sure you have that "twinkle" in your eye durring the meeting.
Link Posted: 3/17/2005 1:48:25 PM EST
Fuck 'em if they can't take a joke. Meeting over, no comments, no repercussions. Frankly, I don't think anyone even noticed. They're too busy jerking each other off about how great they are to notice anything else.

Also, this was a meeting on a project we've already got, so that's not even an issue. As far as being "professional" and all that, I have absolutely no qualms whatsoever about my appearance, behavior, contribution or anything else regarding professional conduct. Having a Viagra pen in my pocket has no effect whatsoever on my professionalism. It is possible to be professional and have a sense of humor, you know.

Lighten up, Francis!

Really, it's just a pen for Christ's sake. I say yes.

Some people on here put too much starch in their underwear.

Meeting with a client eh? Are you going to tell them your company can't be beat? or are you trying to lure them in against some stiff competition?
Whatever you do I hope they aren't too hard on you.
