Would you buy a used car from this man? Would you buy a ream of paper from this man--Dwight Schrute?
For me, this is the big unanswered question that the great writers of the acclaimed TV show "The Office" haven't answered. We have heard occasionally that Schrute is the best salesman in The Office.
How can that be?
I mean, what does he have going for him that would put him on top of the sales chart? He's such a repulsive character, who would want to take a second call from him, much less place an order with him.
Maybe in the new season we'll get an answer. Then everyone in sales can succeed too.
