The Sale

A young guy from a small town in Canada, bored with the place, moves to Chicago and goes to a big "everything under one roof" department store looking for a job. The manager says, "do you have any experience

The kid says, Yeah, I was a salesman back home in Canada."

Well, the boss liked the kid so he gave him a 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 made it through it. After the store was locked up, the boss came down.

"How many sales did you make today?"

The kid says, "One."

The boss says, "Just one?" "Our sales people average 20 or 30 sales a day. "How much was the sale for?"

The kid says, "$101,237.64."

The boss says, "$101237.64?" "What the HELL did you sell him?"

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 gonna need a boat, so we went down to the boat department and I sold him that twin engine Chris Craft. Then he said he didn't think his Buick would pull it, so I took him down to the automotive department and sold him that Chevy Truck."

The boss said, "A guy came in here to buy a fish hook and you sold him a boat and truck?"

Kid says, "No, he came in here to buy a box of tampons for his wife and I said "Well, your weekend's shot, you might as well go fishing.'"
