The manager asked, "Do you have any sales experience?" . The young man answered, "Yeah, I was a salesman back in
The manager groaned and continued "Just one? Here in Harrods, our sales people average 20 or 30 sales a day. How much was the sale for?" . "£108,637.64", the Punjabi replied. The manager choked and exclaimed "£108,637.64? What the hell did you sell him?"
"Well, first I sold him a small fish hook, then a medium fish hook, and then I sold him a new fishing rod. Then I asked him where he was going fishing and he said down at the coast so I told him he would need a boat, so we went down to the boat department and I sold him that twin-turbo Power Cat. Then he said he didn't think his Honda Civic would pull it, so I took him down to Harrods car sales and I sold him a Porsche Cayenne." The manager, incredulous, said "You mean to tell me....a guy came in here to buy a fish hook and you sold him a boat and 4x4?"
"No, no, no......he came in here to buy a box of tampons for his wife and I said........."Well, since your weekend's fucked, you might as well go fishing."
