Plodding Tim Burton (Jack Devereaux) can't get ahead at the wholesale grocery house where he works as a clerk. He envies Flash Lewis (Henry P. Dixon), a fast-talking salesman who lives up (or down) to his name. Tom marries his sweetheart Frances (Winifred Allen), but she gets impatient with his inability to advance in life. Finally she gets a job of her own and leaves him until he can make good. Tom leaves the grocery house and is rootless for a while, but one day he comes up with a "taste and buy" sales promotion. The idea works, and word filters back to his former employers. His old boss (Barney Gilmore) gives him back his job, and Frances comes back for the requisite happy ending.
