The Department Store Salesman

            A bright country boy applied for a salesman's job at a rather large city department store. The store sold everything from clothing to sporting goods to recreational vehicles and everything in between.  

     The boss asked him, "Have you ever been a salesman before?" “Yes, I was a salesman in the country" said the boy. The boss liked the enthusiasm he saw and said, "You can start tomorrow and I'll come and see you when we close up shop."

          The day was long and arduous for the young man, but finally it was store closing time. Just as he had promised, the boss duly stopped by and asked, "How many sales did you make today?" "One," said the young salesman. "Only one?" blurted the boss, "most of my staff makes 20 or 30 sales a day. How much was the sale worth?"

          "Two Hundred Fifty Thousand dollars," said the young man. "How did you manage that?" asked the 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 light fishing line, a medium line and a heavy line.

          I asked him where he was going fishing and he said in the ocean.   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 truck department and sold him the new Deluxe Step Side Crew Cab Dually Truck."

          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 boy "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.'"
