Salesman of the year!

A young guy from Nebraska 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 Omaha." 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

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 some small sized flies. Then I sold him some
medium sized flies. Then I sold him some large ones. Then I sold him a new
Xi2. 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 new Maverick flats skiff. 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 said, "A guy came in here to buy a few flies and you sold him 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.'
