Best Salesman in Texas...
A young man from Texas moves to California and goes to a big mega-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 Texas."
Well the boss liked the kid so he gave him the job. "You can start tomorrow. I'll come down after we close and you can fill me in on your day.
His first day on the job was rough, but he got through it. After the store was lock up, the boss came down.
"How many sales did you make today?" the boss asked.
The kid says "One."
The boss says, "Just one? Our sales people average 20 to 30 sales a day. How much was the sale for?"
The kid says "$101,237.64"
The boss says "$101,237.64 ? What the hell did you sell ?"
The 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. ThenI 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 that twin engine Chis Craft. Then he didn't think his Honda Cicic 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?"
The 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."
"To be afraid is to be alive - to act against that fear is to be a person of courage."
