Chapter 438: Three Stages of Pain .
Hearing this, Si Yueting and Liu Yiyao’s hearts froze, they felt a little hopeless . Dean Guo’s attitude was too unyielding to be swayed . They couldn’t help but look eagerly at Xiao Luo, like two defeated sheeps .
“The speed of normal people’s speech is about 300 words a minute . A 100 words should be around 20 seconds . Meaning Dean Guo is only giving me 20 seconds . Is this really an opportunity?” Xiao Luo lightly said .
Guo Taining, who was reading his medical books, finally raised his eyes slightly and glanced at Xiao Luo, “Young man … You are quite interesting . Since you think this condition is too harsh, I will amend it . Recently, a friend of mine has bought a batch of high-grade men’s socks, each of which sells for 1,000 yuan . Most people would not even give the socks a glance because of this price . So the socks are left unsold in the store . Since you are here selling, meaning you are experienced in this field, can you help him solve this problem?”
1000 yuan for one pair of socks?
God, how could it be sold? Even the most successful man would not spend 1000 yuan on a pair of socks .
Si Yueting and Liu Yiyao were flabbergasted . This demand was even more challenging than just saying one hundred words… However, they would never say that out loud .
The two racked their brains for a long time but were still unable to find a solution . As far as they knew, people could buy three pairs of socks for ten yuan . Therefore, to spend one thousand yuan to buy one pair was simply foolish .
Guo Taining turned his eyes to the book again and said indifferently, “Several of my colleagues and classmates helped with the analysis, and finally came to the conclusion that they would give up these socks . ”
Si Yueting and Liu Yiyao said in unison in their hearts, This is definitely impossible . Who would be stupid enough to spend 1000 yuan to buy a pair of socks?
“Dean Guo, I have an idea here . You can let your friend give it a try . ” Xiao Luo spoke at this time .
“Oh? What idea? ” Guo Taining raised his head again .
Xiao Luo smiled, “Since you can’t sell it to men, why not sell these socks to women?”
When Si Yueting and Liu Yiyao were shocked when they heard this . Si Yueting quietly reminded, “Luo Ge, this is a man’s sock, not a woman’s sock . How can a woman want it?”
Guo Taining was stunned for a moment, then looked at Xiao Luo cheerfully and said, “As this girl said, this is men’s socks . Don’t you think it’s strange that women buy men’s socks?”
“Strange? In fact, it is not surprising at all . ”
Xiao Luo calmly explained, “Put these high-end socks next to women’s high-end cosmetics . When a woman buys thousands or even tens of thousands of cosmetics, as long as she has a little bit of love for her husband, she will have a little bit of fear and guilt in her heart . She would feel too guilty afterward . She would think, ‘I only care about myself, but I don’t care about my husband’ . And at this time, she would turn and see a pair of men’s socks for 1000 yuan . Her fear and guilt would immediately compel her purchase a pair for her husband . When she gets home, she would tell her husband that she went to the mall and bought them both something . In this way, this batch of socks can be sold naturally . ”
Oh, my God!
After listening to these words, Si Yueting and Liu Yiyao were both stunned as they looked at Xiao Luo as if he was an alien . This concept was too out of the box . Men’s socks being sold to women . How did he think of this?
The woman who brought in Xiao Luo’s group was also stunned . Her jaw dropped . Xiao Luo’s idea was really marvelous . Although she hadn’t experienced or seen it in action yet, she was already sold to this idea .
Guo Taining put down his medical book and nodded, “Interesting, interesting… Young man, your minister didn’t answer the same way . ” He then said to the woman next to him . “Xiao Yun, prepare tea!”
“Yes . ”
The woman called Xiao Yun went to a tea set and prepared to make tea .
Guo Taining came out from behind his desk and made a gesture, “This way, please!”
Xiao Luo nodded and followed Guo Taining toward the sofa beside the tea set . He knew that he had met the qualification to discuss things in detail with Guo Taining .
Si Yueting and Liu Yaoyi looked at each other, they were overjoyed . Because they saw a glimmer of hope, they silently gave Xiao Luo the thumbs-up sign .
“Young man, I haven’t considered your Huayao Group this time . I have worked with Cui Yongsheng, the sales director of Renhe Pharmaceutical for many years and we have deep friendship . And my decision will not change . However, I appreciate you young man . Hence I feel like I should make friends with you today . If I need any equipment in the future, I will take the initiative to contact you . ”
Guo Taining simply said as he poured tea for Xiao Luo .
These words made Si Yueting and Liu Yiyao’s hearts plunge to the bottom once again, just as they were beginning to see the light of hope .
Xiao Luo was not in a hurry to go directly into the topic . He took a sip of tea and looked at the medical book on Dean Gou’s desk not too far away, “That book should be about how to alleviate the pain of women during childbirth, right?”
“Yes, that is a book written by Lin Qiaozhi, the founder of obstetrics and gynecology in China . It seems that you are also involved in the medical field . How about talking about your understanding of women’s childbirth . ” Guo Taining said .
“Then I will talk about a thing or two, and teach fish to swim in front of Dean Guo . A woman’s delivery process is divided into three stages . The first stage is the pain in the early stage of uterine contraction, which is similar to dysmenorrhea . The pain of boiling frogs in warm water is nothing to a woman who has experienced dysmenorrhea .
“The second stage: the contractions are getting worse . When the uterine opening reaches the third finger, the pains will only increase as time goes by . Since many patients (the mother’s) already expect that they will be in such pain every few minutes, they will tremble with fear . And at this instance, it is also the time when the expectant mothers in the delivery room make a heartbreaking cry . ”
Xiao Luo discussed with Guo Taining and exchanged knowledge about the childbirth process .
“Well, not bad . ” Guo Taining’s appreciation for the young man in front of the man grew stronger .
Si Yueting and Liu Yi Yao were tongue-tied again . They couldn’t believe that their Team Leader Xiao Luo was so informed about the subject . This was ALMOST too much .
Xiao Luo smiled lightly and said, “The third stage is when the baby comes out from the birth canal . In fact, there is nothing to say at this stage . When the baby comes out, all the pain will gradually dissipate, which will make the mother feel relieved . What I want to emphasize is the second stage, which is the most torturous to the soul and body . It’s basically like they’re in the purgatory .
“Every minute is as long as a century for them . Many women have committed suicide by jumping off a building because they can’t stand this kind of pain . Although the painless delivery technology is available now, the anesthetic effect is limited, the pain is only toned down but cannot be completely eliminated . Dean Guo, am I right?”
Guo Taining’s look was somewhat unnatural, though he still nodded, “What you said is indeed quite right . ”
“Guo Dean, ten years ago, a woman jumped from the fifth floor of the inpatient department of your Women’s Insurance Institute because she couldn’t stand the pain in this second stage . She died with the child in her stomach, and that woman is your ex-wife . Am I right?” Xiao Luo suddenly threw a bomb at Guo Taining .
“Pa cha ~”
Guo Taining’s hand trembled for a moment, and his teacup fell to the ground and broke into pieces .
[T/N: I was a little confused on why Mc talked about women jumping from a building since I thought it was too extreme but after reading the whole thing . All I can say is D*mn . Who would’ve thought?]
