Deeper Blue Beer Taster
Oct 19, 2002
A young guy from Texas moves to California and goes to a big department store looking for a job. The manager says" Do you have any sales experience?" The kid says, "Yeah, I was a salesman back home in Texas." Well the boss liked the kid , so gave him a job. "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 boss came down.

"How many sales did you make today?"

The kid says "one."

The boss says,"Just one? Our sales people average 20 or 30 a day. How much was this sale for?" Kid says $101,237.64." Boss says "$101,237.64? What did you sell him?" Kid says, " First I sold him a small spear and spear gun. Then I sold him a medium spear and spear gun. Then a large spear and spear gun. Then I asked where he was going to go, he said down to the coast, so I told him he was going to need a boat, so we went down to the boat department, and sold him that twin engine Chris Craft. then he said he didn't think that his Honda Civic would pull it, so I took him down to the automotive department and sold him that 4X4 blazer."

The boss said " A guy came in here to buy a spear and spear gun and you sold him a boat and truck?"

Kid says " No, he came in to buy a box of tampons for his wife, and I said ,'Well, since your weekends shot, you might as well go spear fishing."

Merry Christmass everyone :D :D
