    Here we go, another "have they really got nothing better to do" instance. The moaners moaning about 'digital assistant gender bias'. Does any normal person really give a toss? I really can't see my whole world collapsing over this!

    Mmm, interesting... What makes you think that and why?

    It's certainly not something I've experienced.

    When I visit them they generally have already decided what they want. I don't know who had the final say in these decisions, and when I'm discussing the work with them I always include both in the discussion, maintaining eye contact between them both, so they both feel that their input is equally valid, which of course it is. I don't know whether this is the way it is done in sales, it's just the way I deal with folk, and (touch wood) I always seem to 'hit it off' with customers

    Having said that it's usually the man who does most of the talking, but I think that's probably more to do with men usually having a better understanding of the nuts & bolts of what's involved. I imagine if I was selling 'home' products like carpets, furnishing, kitchens etc., the dynamic would be different.

    But my view is that regardless of which spouse appears to be in charge, as long as it's an arrangement they are both happy with, then it's fine.

    *We once had a bloke come round selling us life insurance, and as we sat on the sofa while he stood in front of us delivering his pitch he did a fart which was so loud even the cat looked up, and he never broke his stride, just inserted an "Excuse me" into his pitch and carried on. Then he said "Ooh nice speakers, Acoustic Research are they?" He almost made the sale, but unfortunately he had the same whiney voice as the bloke that bullied me when I was an apprentice, so sending him away felt like justice. Poor man.
    Lol - the fart thing was hilarious! I'd have chucked the smelly bastard out, though... Or was his gas release 'all air and no action'? You know those farts that sound bad, but smell of nothing? It's the hot silent (but violent) ones that are the killers!

    Noted on the rest. I didn't know exactly what your role was, or what your job entailed, and thought you were a salesman, not just a fitter. Cool beans
