Salesman of the year

A young guy from Oklahoma moves to California 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 home in Oklahoma.

Well, the boss liked the kid so he 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 sales did you make today?

The kid says, One.

The boss says, Just one? Our sales people average 20 or 30 sales a day.
You're going to have to improve considerably or look for another job!
How much was the sale for?

The kid says, $112,237.64.

The boss says, $112,237.64?! What the heck 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 and real to go with the fishing rod.

Then I asked him where he was going fishing and he said down at the
lake, so I told him he was going to need a boat, so we went down to the
boat department and I sold him a new bass boat. 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 new Ford pick-up. I asked him
how long he was going to be out at the lake and after he said 5 or 6
days I took him down to the RV department and sold him a slide-in camper
for the truck.

The boss said, A guy came in here to buy a fish hook and you sold him a
boat, a truck and a camper?

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.'
