Fishing For a Sale

A keen country lad applied for a
salesman's job at a city department store. In fact it was the biggest store in the world -
you could get anything there. The boss asked him, "Have you ever been a salesman

Yes, I was a salesman in the
country" said the lad. The boss liked the cut of  him and said, "You can
start tomorrow and I'll come and see you when we close up."

The day was long and arduous for the
young man, but finally 5 o'clock came around. The boss duly fronted up and asked,
"How many sales did you make today?"

"One," said the young
salesman. "Only one?" blurted the boss, "most of my staff make 20 or 30
sales a day. How much was the sale worth?"

"Three hundred thousand
dollars," said the young man. "How did you manage that?" asked the
flabbergasted boss. "Well," said the salesman "this man came in and I sold
him a small fish hook, then a medium hook and finally a really large hook. Then I sold him
a small fishing line, a medium one and a huge big one. I asked him where he was going
fishing and he said down the coast.

I said he would probably need a boat, so
I took him down to the boat department and sold him that twenty foot schooner with the
twin engines. Then he said his Volkswagen probably wouldn't be able to pull it, so I took
him to the car department and sold him the new Deluxe Cruiser."

The boss took two steps back and asked
in astonishment, "You sold all that to a guy who came in for a fish hook?"

"No," answered the salesman
"He came in to buy a box of Tampons for his wife and I said to him, 'Your weekend's
shot, you may as well go fishing.'"
