A software engineer was visiting his grandparents in the village.

On the following day, he took a round of the village.

On the outskirts of the village he came upon a strange sight he had not seen before. It was a thatched shed open on the sides. He saw a bull slowly and steadily going around in a rutted circle. And a man who seemed to be the owner was sleeping peacefully on a bench.

He stopped a passer-by and asked him what was happening.

Amused, the man explained it was an oil mill to crush oil seeds to extract oil. Sometimes it was dried coconut kernels (copra). These were held in a large mortar like structure and ground by a big pestle driven by the bull in a harness, sometimes a pair. .

He found it very interesting to observe this traditional oil-expeller in action.

A question occurred to him. To the passer-by: ‘What happens if the bull stopped…here the man is blissfully asleep.’

‘He’ll know. You see the bell round the bull’s neck? It’ll stop ringing.’

He was impressed with this simple innovative solution.

Returning home, he had to share it with his grandparents.

Just then, a thought came to him. Exclaiming in self-reproach: ‘Stupid of me – I didn’t ask….’

‘Why, what happened?’ inquired his grandpa.

‘What would happen…how would the man know if his bull stood at one place and shook his neck, ringing the bell?’

His father sorted it out: ‘Son, these bulls around here are not the work-from-home types.’

An old classic from Hubspot:

The entire North American sales force of Frisky Dog Food was gathered together for their national sales convention at Miami Beach. In the great auditorium the marketing director was giving a performance that any revivalist would have been proud of. Using the old pattern of call and response, he was really working up the spirits of his sales team.

“Who’s got the greatest dog food in North America?” the marketing director asked.

“We have!” the audience replied.

“And who’s got the greatest advertising campaigns?”

“We have!”

“Who’s got the most attractive packages?”

“We have!”

“Who’s got the biggest distribution?”

“WE HAVE!”

“Okay. So why aren’t we selling more of the product?”

One bold voice from the crowd replied:

“Because the darned dogs don’t like it.”

The man counted the currency note bundle given by the cashier. He felt it was short by a note.

‘M’m, could you kindly load it in the counting machine and check it out for me?’

The cashier sounded impatient, her manner less than friendly: ‘Why, is it less…..look I’m busy, don’t have the time. Why don’t you count it yourself carefully once, twice, eh?

‘No, M’m, I think there’s a note or two in excess.’

The bundle was hastily snatched from his hands, counted on the machine multiple times and given back.

It works when a service-delivery-chain is drawn into the transaction with stakes enlarged beyond the transaction!
