good salesman

A young guy from Wisconsin moves to Florida 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 Wisconsin .'
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 to see him.
'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 him?'
The kid says, 'First, I sold him a small fish hook. Then I sold him a medium fishhook.
Then I sold him a larger fishhook. Then I sold him a new fishing rod.
Then I 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 him a 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 Expedition.'

The boss says, 'A guy came in here to buy a fish hook
and you sold him a BOAT and a TRUCK? Is that right?'

The kid answers, 'No, the guy came in here to buy
Tampons for his wife, and I said, 'Dude, your weekend's
shot; you should go fishin'.''
