Best fishing story I ever heard!!
« on: April 08, 2017, 02:32 PM »
A young guy from Idaho 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 vacuum salesman back in Idaho."

Well, the boss was unsure, but he liked the kid and figured he'd give
him a shot, so he 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 to the sales floor.

"How many customers bought something from you today?" The kid frowns
and looks at the floor and mutters, "One".

The boss says "Just one?!!? Our sales people average sales to 20 to 30
customers a day.

"That will have to change, and soon, if you'd like to continue your
employment here. We have very strict standards for our sales force here
in Florida. One sale a day might have been acceptable in Idaho, but
you're not on the farm anymore, son."

The kid took his beating, but continued to look at his shoes, so the
boss felt kinda bad for chewing him out on his first day. He asked
(semi-sarcastically), "So, how much was your one sale for?"

The kid looks up at his boss and says "$101,237.65."

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

The kid says, "Well, first, I sold him some new fish hooks. Then I sold
him a new fishing rod to go with his new hooks. 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 Expedition."

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!"
