~ Overheard in a business meeting today

I wish I shared my colleague’s certainty in this regard. Are people still human? So long as they remain human, they will not be precisely the customers we want them to be. That seems the suggestion. And yet, though we sell an intangible product that has no place in nature, we make a decent living, don’t we?
