Jalil's job is to sell things to people by going to their apartments or houses.
He is a door to door salesperson. His working hours are long and tiring. His day
sometimes ends at ten or eleven o'clock at night, after many other people have
gone to bed.
There are many things that a salesperson sells, Jalil sells
electrical appliances, like vacuum cleaners, washing machines and toasters. He
does not carry all of these things when he walks around from place to place. he
has a van in which he puts these things. When a customer is truly interested,
Jalil will offer to show his customer how the appliances work. But first he has
to convince the customer that what he is selling is worth buying. He does this
by telling them the advantages in buying the product.
Sometimes, Jalil becomes disappointed when he cannot sell anything. He also
gets angry when he faces rude customers who slam their doors in his face. He is
grateful to those who give him the time of day
to listen to him because it gives him a chance to get his job done.
