A young farm boy from Saskatchewan moved to Vancouver Island and went to a huge
"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 Saskatchewan .'

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 salespeople average 20 to 30 customers a day.

How much was the sale for?'

The kid says, '$101,237.65.'

The boss says, '$101,237.65! What the heck did you sell?'

The 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 going to need a boat, so we went down to the boat department and I sold him a twin engine Chris Craft.
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 4x4 Ford Expedition.'

The boss said, 'You mean to tell me that a guy came in here to buy a fish hook and you sold him a BOAT and a TRUCK?'

The Saskatchewan farm boy 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!'

True story in Readers Digest:

A fellow said his brother had applied for a job as a salesman in a funiture store. All of the applicants were lined up in the hall outside the hiring manager's office and being interviewed one by one.

The fellow's brother said, "Heck with it", and instead of waiting his turn he simply went out on the floor and started selling. By the time his turn came up to be interviewed, he'd sold several thousand dollars worth of furniture.

He got the job.
