A young man went to the new MegaMall looking for a job

A young man went to the new MegaMall looking for a job. The manager asked “Do you have any sales experience?”

The young man answered “Yeah, I was a salesman back home in Dallas.” The manager liked the young man so he gave him the job.

His first day was challenging and busy, but he got through it.

After the store was locked up, the manager came down and asked, “OK, so how many sales did you make today?”

The salesman said “One!”

The manager groaned and continued, “Just one? Our sales people average 20 or 30 sales a day. How much was the sale for?”


The manager choked and exclaimed $124,237.64!! What the hell did you sell him?”

“Well, first I sold him a small fish hook, then a medium fish hook, and a fishing rod with reel. Then I asked him where he was going fishing and he said down at the coast, so I told him he would need a boat, so we went down to the boat department and I sold him that twin-engine Yellowfin. Then he said he didn’t think his Kia Soul would pull it, so I took him over to car sales and I sold him the 4×4.”

The manager, incredulous, said, “You mean to tell me…a guy came in here to buy a fish hook and you sold him a boat and a 4×4?”

“No, actually he came in here to buy a box of tampons for his girlfriend and I told him since his weekend is pretty well screwed, he might as well go fishing.”
