By the time we arrived, I was sweating, wilted, and positively Green. I couldn't even enjoy the appetizers and the free liquor. It was a horrible evening.
The person below me will tell a funny joke to help get us all through a long, cold, dark, never ending winter.
A country guy applies for a job at a big fancy retail store. The manager said that since he had no experience, they would try him out for a day & see how he did.
At the end of the day -
Manager: So, how did it go? How many sales did you have?
Guy: I think I did pretty good. I had one sale.
Manager: Just one?!?! How much was it?
Guy: Well I think it was a good one. It was just a little under $100,000.
Manager: $100,000?!?!?! What on earth did you sell?!?!
Guy: Well, this fella came in and we got to looking at fishing line. Turned out he didn't really know what he was fishing for or what weight to get, so we got several different ones. And he didn't really have any good equipment, so we went & picked out various & sundry rods and tackle and such. The fella said he didn't have much of a boat other than a john-boat, so we went over to that department and picked him out a really nice 22 footer (he's really gonna like that) and a trailer. And well, it turned out, he wasn't gonna be able to pull that thing with his little car, so we found him a pickup that could handle that kinda towing. Anyway, all told, it came out somewhere in the neighborhood of 90-something thousand.
Manager: So wait. You have zero sales experience and you're telling me a guy came in for fishing line and you sold him $100K worth of goods?
Guy: Well, no. Actually when he came in he said he was looking for tampons and I said, "Well, hell, your weekend's shot. You might as well go fishin'."
(5 minutes of winter - Gone!)
The person below me has a great story about fishing.
