A Salesman

A young guy from Wyoming moves to
California and goes to a big 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 Wyoming."

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.
How much was the sale for?"

Kid says, "$101,237.64."

Boss says, "$101,237.64? 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
going to 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 Blazer."

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

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!"

I was with you, right up to the part where a young blood from Wyoming willingly went to Cali! Other than that, yeah, sounds like a good ol Wyoming boy.
