A young guy from Mississippi 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 Mississippi.\'

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, \'$121,237.65\'
 
The  boss says, \'$121,237.65? What the hell did you  sell?\'
 
The kid says, \'First, I sold him a  small fishhook. 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  Boston
Whaler. 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 4 x 4 Expedition.\'
 
The boss said, \'A guy came in  here to buy a fish hook 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\'
