Something to read on your Monday kick-off. :>

"The Salesman"
A young guy from Minnesota moves 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 Minnesota." Well, the boss
liked the kid and gave him the 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 got
through it. After the
store was locked up, the boss came down. "How
many customers bought something from you today? The
kid says "one". The boss says "Just one?
Our sales people average 20 to 30 customers a day.
How much was the sale for?" The kid says
"$121,237.65". The boss says
"$121,237.65? What the heck did you sell?"

The kid says, "First, 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 a twin
engine Boston Whaler.

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

The boss said "A guy came in here to buy a fish
hook and you sold him a BOAT and a TRUCK?" The kid
said "No, the guy came in here to buy Tampons
for his wife, and I said, 'Dude, your weekend's
shot, you should go fishing."
