Sales Tip‏

Post by Ont_Excal » Fri Mar 16, 2012 6:33 pm

A young farm boy from Saskatchewan moved to Vancouver Island and went
to a huge "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 Saskatchewan.'

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 salespeople 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 fishhook. 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 Ford
Expedition.'

The boss said, 'You mean to tell me that a guy came in here to buy a
fish hook and you sold him a BOAT and a TRUCK?'

The Saskatchewan farm boy 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!'
