The day was long and arduous for the young man, but finally 5 o’clock came around. The boss arrived and asked, “How many sales did you make today?”
“One,” said the young salesman.
“Only one?” blurted the boss. “The majority of my staff makes 20 or 30 sales a day. How much was the sale worth?”
“$38,334,” said the young man.
“How did you manage that?” asked the flabbergasted boss.
“Well,” said the salesman, “This man came in and I sold him a small bag of tees, then a medium bag of tees and finally a really large bag of tees. Then I sold him a small box of golf balls, a medium box of golf balls and a huge box of golf balls.
“I asked him where he was going to golf and he said he was going down to the country club. I said he would probably need a golf cart, so I took him down to the cart department and sold him that new 300-amp electric golf cart with the nubby wheels.
“Then he said his Volkswagen probably wouldn’t be able to pull it, so I took him to the car department and sold him a new pick-up to haul it in.”
The boss took two steps back and asked in astonishment, “You sold all that to a guy who came in for a bag of tees?”
“No,” answered the salesman. “Actually, he came in to buy a box of tampons for his wife and I said to him, “Your weekend’s shot, you may as well go golfing.”
