Goes Back, b'y   Newfie Salesman

Author: Kim

A young Newfoundlander moved to California and goes to a big mega-department store looking for a job.

The manager says " Do you have any sales experience?"

The Newfie says " Yeah, I was a salesman back home in Newfoundland."

Well, the boss liked the Newfoundlander (of course) so he gave him the job. He said " You can start tomorrow. I'll come down after we close and see how you did on your first day".

His first day on the job was rough, but he got through it. After the store was locked up, the boss came down to see him. "How many sales did you make today?", the boss asked.

The Newfie proudly said " One".

The boss says, " Just One? Our sales people average 20- 30 sales a day. How much was the sale for?"

The Newfie says, $101,237.64".

The Boss says, " $101,237.64? What in the name of God did you sell?"

The Newfie said, "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 to go 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 dept. and I sold him that twin engine Sea Ray. Then he said he didn't think his Honda Civic would pull it, so I took him down to the automotive dept. and sold him that 4 X 4 Suburban.

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

The Newfie 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!!!"
