World’s Greatest Salesman

Thank you Dad for emailing me this!  LOLOLOL 

A young guy from Mississippi moves to Florida and goes to a big”everything under one
roof” department store looking for a job.

The Manager says, “Do you have any
sales experience?”  The kid says “Yeah. I was a salesman back in
Mississippi ”  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

His first day on the job was rough, but he got through it. After
the store was locked up, the boss came down.  “How many customers
bought something from you today?  The kid says “One.”  The boss
says “Just one?  Our sales people average 20 to 30 customers a day.   How much
was the sale for?”  The kid says “$121,237.65.”  The boss says
“$121,237.65?   What the hell did you sell?”

The kid says,”First I sold him a small fish hook. Then I sold him amedium fish hook.  Then I sold him a
larger fish hook. Then I sold him anew 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 Boston Whaler.  Then he said he didn’t think his Honda Civic would pull
it, so I took him down to the automotive department and sold him that 4 x 4Expedition.”

The boss said, “A guy came in here to buy a fish hook
and you sold him a BOAT and a TRUCK?”

The kid said, “No, the guy came in here to buy Tampons for his wife, and I said, “Dude, your weekend’s shot,
you should go fishing.”
