|This is a fan deck|
Fan decks are an expensive commodity. We give them to contractors because they buy a lot of paint. Private party's rarely get to see one since they run about $70. We used to be able to sell them to customers but not any more. You sell more paint if the customer actually comes into the store to look at colors. Give them a fan deck and they'll sit at home paging through it, and then they'll set it aside and do something else. Anyway, I gave him a fan deck.
As I said, I stopped by his store today and he gave me a T-shirt. That was very nice of him, even if I can't wear it in public.
What would people think? Anyway, I have some very nice Behr Paint hats. They give them to me every time I go to one of their training seminars. So, I think that probably next Tuesday I'll give him something he can't wear in public. Think of it as tit for tat. At least I feel good knowing I solved his fan deck dilemma.
