One Hellva Salesman

A young guy from Missouri moves to Florida and goes to a big
"everything under the 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 home in Missouri."

Well, the boss liked the kid so he gave him the job. "You start
tomorrow, Il 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 to 30 sales a
day!

How much was the sale for?

The kid says " $101,237.64"

The boss says, "$101,23764? WHAT THE HELL DID YOU SELL?"

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 at the coast, so I told him he was gonna need a boat, so we
went down to the boat department and I sold him that 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 says, " No, he came in here to buy a box of tampons for his
wife and I said, "Well, your weekend's shot, you might as well go
fishing.."
