Salesmen call it the foot-in-the-door technique. You get someone to make a small concession, and that makes it easier for you to get them to agree to a bigger concession later.
Douglas Jackson, 61, of Statesville, NC, must have been watching Glengarry Glen Ross recently.
When an enterprising 14-year-old girl agreed to do yard work for pay, he had that perverted foot in the doorway.
After letting her work up a good sweat, he pushed a hard sell: more pay for more services.
Specifically, Santa Claus here wanted her to shuck off them sweaty skivvies, ’cause she so sexy.
The unnamed young lady slammed the door right on that ol’ cloven hoof.
The incident was reported to local authorities on August 3rd, and Jackson was arrested for the indecent proposal. He was held under a $50,000 bond on a single felony charge of indecent liberties with a child.
Sorry, dude, those Glengarry leads aren’t for the likes of you. You can’t close shit.
