A keen country lad applied for a salesman's job at a city department
store. In fact it was the biggest store in the world - you could get
anything there.

The boss asked him, "Have you ever been a salesman before?". "Yes, I
was a salesman in the country", said the lad. The boss liked the cut
of him and said, "You can start tomorrow and I'll come and see you
when we close up".

The day was long and arduous for the young man, but finally 5 o'clock
came around. The boss duly fronted up and asked, "How many sales did
you make today?". "One" said the young salesman. "Only one", blurted
the boss, "Most of my staff make 20 or 30 sales a day. How much was
the sale worth?" "Three hundred thousand, three hundred and thirty
four dollars" said the young man. "How did you manage that?" asked the
flabbergasted boss. "Well", said the salesman "this man came in and I
sold him a small fish hook, then a medium hook and finally a really
large hook. Then I sold him a small fishing line, a medium one and a
huge big one. I asked him where he was going fishing and he said down
the coast. I said he would probably need a boat, so I took him down to
the boat department and sold him that twenty- foot schooner with the
twin engines. Then he said his Volkswagen probably wouldn't be able to
pull it, so I took him to the car department and sold him the new
Deluxe Cruiser"

The boss took two steps back and asked in astonishment, "You sold all
that to a guy who came in for a fish hook". "No" answered the
salesman, He came in to buy a box of Tampons for his wife and I said
to him, "Your weekend's fucked, you may as well go fishing".
