Default Fishing....

>> A young man from Minnesota 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 salesman back in

>> Minnesota."

>>

>> 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 sales people 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 fish hook.

>> 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 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'* shot,

>> you should go fishing."
