the new salesman

Discussion in 'Comedy' started by rico, May 15, 2006.

  1. A young guy from WISCONSIN moved 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
    WISCONSIN ."

    Well, the boss liked the looks of the kid, so he gave him a job and
    said
    "You start tomorrow, and I'll come down after we close and see how you
    did." Ok?

    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 customers bought something from you on your first day?

    The kid says, "One".

    The boss says, "Just One?" You know our sales people average on a slow
    day 20 to 30 customers, but you had "JUST ONE". And how much was your
    "JUST ONE for?"

    The kid says, "$101,237.65".

    The boss said what?... "$101,237.65? well, what the hell did you
    sell?''

    The kid says, "First, I sold him a small fishhook. Then I sold him a
    medium fishhook. Then I sold him a larger fishhook. 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 "Chis
    Craft".

    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 "4X4
    Expedition."

    The boss said, "A man came in here to buy a fishing hook and you sold
    him a "BOAT and a TRUCK?"

    No the kid said, The man came in to buy "Tampons for his wife", And I
    said, "Dude, your weekend's shot, you should go fishing".
