A young guy from Checotah moves to Tulsa 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 in Checotah ." Well, the boss liked the kid and 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 customers bought something from you today?
The kid says "one".
The boss says "Just one? Our sales people average 20 to 30 customers a day. How much was the sale for?"
The kid says "$101,237.65".
The boss says "$101,237.65? What the heck did you sell?"

The kid says, "First, I sold him a fish hook. Then I sold him some plastic worms. Then I sold him a new fishing rod. Then I asked him where he was going fishing and he said lake Eufaula, 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 deluxe Mercury powered Predator.
Then he said he didn't think his Toyota Prius would pull it, so I took him down to the automotive department and sold him that 4 x 4 Expedition."

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

The kid said "No, the guy came in here to buy Tampons for his wife, and I said, "Dude, your weekend's shot. You should go fishing."
