A young Aussie lad moved to London and went to Harrods
looking for a job.

The manager asked 'Do you have any sales experience?'
The young man answered 'Yeah, I was a salesman back home
in Dubbo.'

The manager liked the Aussie so he gave him the job.

His first day was challenging and busy, but he got
through it.

After the store was locked up, the manager came down and
asked, 'OK, so how many sales did you make today?'

The Aussie said 'One!'

The manager groaned and continued, 'Just one? Our sales
people average 20 or 30 sales a day.
How much was the sale for?'

The manager choked and exclaimed £124,237.64!! 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-engine
Power Cat.'

'Then he said he didn't think his Honda Civic would pull
it, so I took him down to car sales
and I sold him the 4 x4'

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 a 4x4?'

'No, no, no... he came in here to buy a box of tampons
for his lady friend and I said...

'Well, since your weekend's buggered, you might as well
go fishing.'
