    A young guy from Texas moves to California 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 home in Texas."
    >
    >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?"
    >
    >The kid says, "One."

    >How much was the sale for?"
    >

    >Kid says, "First I sold him a small fish hook. Then I sold him a medium

    >fishing rod. Then I asked him where he was going fishing and he said
    >down at the coast, so I told him he was gonna need a boat, so we went
    >down to the boat department and I sold him that twin-engine Chris Craft.
    >Then he said he didn't think his Honda Civic would pull it, so I took
