Don’t be a pill (explainer)

I should have known better. I spent 10 years in sales (three in sales training and two in sales management) at ADP, one of the largest and most stable companies in America and one that is known for its sales expertise.But there I was, holding the phone listening to the dial tone having just been hung up on. My message failed.
