To anyone who has ever worked in sales of any type, ‘POS’ would stand for ‘point of sale’. We thought as much (looks like we’re all a little out of touch). As in ‘1 thing to say 2 you 3 words 4 you’ – I love you.Just like the seemingly harmless symbol for ‘hook up’, you probably wouldn’t give this one a second glance.
