Someone that peddles cheap plastic shit to supermarkets, food processors and some distributors (but sells direct around them as much as possible). Probably works for one of several whacked out family owned outfits in the Mid-West or Detroit/Southfield area. Generally speaking, a disenfranchised plastic salesman is micromanaged, not to be trusted and demoralized on a routine basis. Common tactics used to keep a disenfranchised plastic salesman down are call reports, routine phone calls questioning their whereabouts, itineraries and installing Satellite GPS units in company vehicles, which promote activity not productivity.
Al Bundy, the shoe salesman from the hit tv show Married With Children, would have been a disenfranchised plastic salesman if only he tried to sell plastic.
