PostHeaderIcon Awesome Salespitch!

A young guy from Joburg moves to Cape Town and goes to a big departmental store looking for a job. The manager says, “Do you have any sales experience?” The kid says, “Sure, I was a salesman back home in Joeys.” Well, 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. “How many sales did you make today?” Kid says, “One.” The boss says, “Just one? Our sales people average 20 or 30 sales a day.

Boss says: How much was the sale for?”

Kid says, “R501,237.64.”

Boss says, “R501,237.64? What the hell did you sell?”

Kid says, “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.

Boss says, “A rod and hooks doesn’t cost that, what else” Then I asked him where he was going fishing and he said down at Gordons Bay, so I told him he was gonna need a boat, so we went down to the boat department and I sold him a twin engine ski boat. Then he said he didn’tthink his Honda Civic would pull it, so I took him down to the automotive department and sold him a 4X4 Landrover.”

The boss said, “A guy came in here to buy a fish hook and you sold him a boat and truck?”

Kid says, “No, he came in here to buy a box of tampons for his wife and I said, ‘Well, your weekend’s f***ed, so you might as well go fishing.'”
