    A young guy from Texas moves to Louisiana and goes to one of those big "everything under one roof" stores looking for a job. The manager asked, "Do you have any sales experience?"
    The kid said, "Sure, I was a salesman back home in Texas."
    The boss liked the kid so he 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 to see how things went.
    "How many sales did you make today?"
    The young man replied without hesitating, "One."
    The boss said, "Just one? Our sales people average 20 or 30 sales a day. How much was the sale for?"
    The kid said, "$101,237.64."
    The boss said, "$101,237.64?! What the hell did you sell?!"
    the kid said, "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. Then I asked him where he was going fishing and he said down at the coast, so I told him he was gonna need a boat, so we went down to the boat department and I sold him that 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 Blazer."
    Amazed, the boss said, "A guy came in here to buy
    a fish hook and you sold him a boat and a truck?"
    "No, he came here to buy a box of tampons for his wife and I said,
    'Well, your weekend’s shot, you might as well go fishing.'"​
