Fishing rod
In reply to James Bligh, Feb 21, 2012

Haha, you remind me of the salesman at Wall Mart (Bruce) that was going to be fired for making to much commission - making more money than the CEO. After spending some time observing him, the new store manager completely changed his mind, and went on to congratulate Bruce: "you are amazing Bruce! The customer came in to buy a fishing rod, and you sell him a boat, and then you persuade him to buy an outboard engine, and then you ask him if he has a trailer, and finally you persuade him that his RWD car won't pull enough and you sell him a 4x4!!!!!" I have never seen such selling skill!" Thank you sir, said Bruce, but actually the customer didn't come to buy a fishing rod. He came asking where was the section where tampax were sold (for his wife), and I asked him: " since your weekend is ruined, why don't you buy a fishing Rod?!"...
