Need A Smile? Pass One On!
A little humour to start your week.
A young Newfoundlander moved to California and went to a big mega-department store looking for a job.
The manager said, "Do you have any sales experience?"
The newfie said, "Yeah, I was a salesman back home in Newfoundland."
Well, the boss liked the Newfoundlander (of course) so he gave him the job.
The manager said, "You can start tomorrow. I'll come down after we close and see how you did."
His first day on the job was rough, but he got through it.
After the store was locked up, the manager asked, "How many sales did you make today?" The Newfie said, "One."
The manager said, "Just one? Our sales people average 20 to 30 sales a day. How much was the sale for?"
The newfie said, "$101,237.64"
The manager gasped, "$101.237.64? What did you sell?"
The newfie said, "I sold him a small fish hook. Then I sold him a medium fish hook. Then I sold him a larger fish hook. 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 that twin engine Sea Ray. 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 4 Suburban."
The manager said, "A guy came in here to buy a fish hook and you sold him a boat and truck?"
The newfie said, "No, he came in here to buy a box of tampons for his wife and I told him that since his weekend's shot -- you might as well go fishing.
