I was at a car dealership that did this--every desk had kids and a family on it, but when I commented on the kids, the salesman said "oh, we're not assigned desks." Apparently having a family was just a tactic to increase the commission.

The white X on the photos really nails it.

Over Christmas we discovered that my dad has a picture frame in pride position on top of his piano that doesn't have any photos of us but three stock photos of an incredibly orange stock family. Apparently it's been there for like 8 months. He just likes the frame.

Funny and sad

That guy looks like he eats kids and drains their vitality on a regular basis

semi related story My boss used to pretend to have a wife and kids for some weird reason, though the pictures on his desk were actually his sister and her daughter He pretended she was his wife though

I forget what the term is but this is a legitimate a tactic, and it works. People are more willing to buy from someone if they don't see them as salesman but as just a regular person doing their job, and flaunting your family is the best way to do that.

You laugh, but when I was a car salesman I did this.

My mom got a photo ornament from a colleague a while ago. She never bothered to slide the glass off and put her picture of her own children inside, so we've had this stock photo kid in a knit cap looking at us from the Xmas tree for the past four years or so. She says he's her abandoned fourth child who lives in our shed.

Dude looks like Hubert Cumberdale.

I had this experience, and with regular customers I had to keep the lie going for over a year. i had to write bios on the back of the frames for consistancy.

I worked in a bank in the UK and there were (and still are) stock photos in all the offices of a dog, some kid playing on the rain, a house, a bike I think and some ugly photomontage of a bunch of local landmarks. Customers used to ask about that shit aaaaaall the time.

Do people usually point their photos on their desk sway from themselves?

Reminds me of Irving from Mr. Robot.

Sadly, this is also a tactic used for some job interviews. If the applicant asks about the interviewer's kids the interviewer will casually ask if they have kids as well. If they do have kids then they won't hire them because they don't want someone with potential "baggage". 😕

Why would he admit the lie, though? And why does he look like a thumb?
15 Jan 2018 00:22 - +1
Ouch - that's sad!

Human Resource reps sometimes do this because they’re not allowed to ask if an interviewee has children.

Just like a friend of mine.

The company wouldn't even pay for the stock photos, damn.

Bill Blazejowski: [picking up photo from desk] Hey Chuck? Who is this? Your wife? Chuck Lumley: Fiancée. Bill Blazejowski: Nice frame!

Representatives in banks do this, too.. the people you talk to when you want to open an account, etc

This would be absolutely brilliant if he had just said 'oh those are just stock photos' and let the reader draw conclusions.
