It’s National Pencil Day, So Naturally I Thought of Mike Rowe

From the minutia file:  Hymen Lipman received the first patent for attaching an eraser to the end of a pencil on this day in 1858.

Whenever I think of a pencil, I cannot help but be reminded of an incredibly interesting, humorous and enlightening essay posted last year on Facebook by everyone’s favorite dirty jobber, Mike Rowe.

I have even referenced the essay as a potential sales training aide.  Summarizing the essay would never do it justice, so please take a few moments and read it yourself.
