We have a sales team who promises customers that their menus can be built and put online within a day. It does not take long to build the menu, but there are other aspects that are out of my control that sometimes take several days to complete. Customers get extremely angry when I cannot deliver on a sales guys promise. The salesmen work on commission, so they will say anything to make a sale, even if it makes us look incapable. If the sales team was honest with the customer, they would still get the sale as customers do not need their site up that quickly.
