So the Manager asks "Do you have any sales experience?"
The kid says "Yeah, I was a pretty good salesman back in Texas,
Well, the boss liked the kid and gave him the job. "You start tomorrow. I'll come down after we close and see how you did."
His first day on the job was rough, but he got through it.
And after the store was locked up, the boss came down
"How many sales did
you make today?"
The kid says, "One!"
The boss says with dismay, "Just one ??!! Our sales people average 20 to 30 sales a day! How much was the sale for?"
And the kid replies, "$101,237.65."
The boss asks in
amazement, "$101,237.65? What the heck did you sell?"
The kid says . . .
"First, I sold him a small fish hook."
"Then I sold him a medium fish hook."
"Then I sold him a larger fish hook."
"Then I sold him a new fishing rod."
"Then I asked him where he was going fishing and he said down the coast, so I told him he was going to need a boat, so we went down to the boat department and I sold him a twin engine Chris Craft."
"Then he said he didn't think his Honda Civic would quite be up to pulling it, so I took him down to the automotive department and sold him that 4x4 SUV."
The boss asked, "Do you mean to tell me that a guy came in here to buy a fish hook, and you sold him a BOAT
AND A TRUCK?"
The kid said "Aw
heck no boss that guy came in here to buy tampons for his wife. I said,
'Well, your weekend's shot! You might as well go fishing!'"
