Sky slams the door on its lying door-to-door sales force
The (mis)sales team are called ‘Sky Walkers’ - a name which would make any sensible person attempt to trap their knackers in the letter box – and 550 of them will be getting their cards with immediate effect.
Sky chose not to mention the lying (OH HAI, RUPERT). Instead, they focussed on the fact that people don’t trust doorstep salespeople anyway. Which turns out to be the correct instinct. A Sky spokesperson mumbled:
‘As customers choose other ways to buy our products, door-to-door sales are becoming less viable and we're proposing to withdraw from this activity. We'll consult with employees before taking a final decision and will work to find alternative roles for those affected should the proposal go ahead.’
So instead of Sky Wankers, they plan to use Sky call centre wankers instead, which will be SO much less irritating, won’t it?
