Salesman of the Year
A young lad moved to London and went to Harrods looking for a job.
The manager asked “Do you have any sales experience?”
The kid answered “Yeah, I was a salesman back home.”
Well the manager liked the kid, so he gave him the job.
His first day on the job was challenging and busy, but he got through it.
After the store was locked up, the manager came down and asked the kid
“OK,so how many sales did you make today?”
The kid 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 kid replied “£101,237.64.”
The manager choked and exclaimed “£101,237.64? What the hell did you sell him?”
The kid said “Well, first I sold him a small fish hook, then a medium
Fish hook,and 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 would need a boat, so we went down to the boat department and
I sold him that twin-engine Power Cat. Then he said he didn’t think his
Honda Civic would pull it, so I took him down to car sales and I sold
Him the 4 x 4 Suzuki”.
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 4×4?”
The kid said “No no no… he came in here to buy a box of tampons for
His lady friend and I said…
‘Well, since your weekend’s messed up, you might as well go fishing.”
