Orange Cone Selling

“Orange Cone Selling” is when you line up traffic markers so a line of customers can form a queue wrapping around the street, while you just sit there taking the purchase orders.

Although I don’t know its true origins, this line was quipped by a mentor of mine very early on in my career. I find that I refer to it often, and it cracks me up every time I hear it.
