A young zealous boy wanted desperately to work at a department store. He approached the store manager who responded they needed no help.
Quite persistent, the boy returned again and again until the manager finally said "We're having a holiday sale tomorrow. Why don't you show up and you can give it a try."
The elated boy returned the following day and proceeded to sell. At the end of the day the store manager called the youngster over and asked how he had done.
The boy responded that he had sold $79,083.50 worth of merchandise. The manager asked how he had done so well.
The young man said,
"Well this guy was going fishing so I asked if he wanted some fish hooks, he said sure, That's $1.50.”
“I asked if he had a nice fishing pole, he said no, so I got a graphite extension pole for $43.50”.
“Do you have a nice reel, not yet replied the customer... so I got him a nice quick release reel for $35.00.”
“I asked where he was going fishing and he said Strawberry Reservoir. I told him the best places to catch fish are near the center.”
"Do you have a boat? The man said he didn't so I set him up with a nice outboard 30 foot cruiser for $28,000.00.”
“Then I asked if he had a trailer. He didn't, so I got him a double axle trailer for $3,000.00.”
“Then I asked what he had to tow the boat. He only had a station wagon, so I told him that just wouldn't do, but we could get him a nice fully loaded Dodge Ram dually, racked and packed with a tow package, trailer hitch and everything for $48,000.00.”
“He wanted it all."
As you can imagine the store manager was astounded.
"And to think it all began with that man asking for a package of fish hooks?"
The boy replied, "Oh no, it all began with him asking for some tampons which were $3.50, so I replied, Well you aren't going to be doing much else this weekend, you might as well go fishing!"
A blonde wanted to go ice fishing, so after getting all of the right tools, she headed toward the nearest frozen lake. After getting comfy on her stool she started to cut a circular hole in the ice.
Then from the heavens a voice boomed, ''THERE ARE NO FISH UNDER THE ICE.''
Startled, the blonde moved further down the ice, poured a thermos of hot chocolate and started to cut yet another hole in the ice.
The voice boomed, ''THERE ARE NO FISH UNDER THE ICE.''
This time quite scared, the blonde moved to the far end of the ice.
Then she started another hole and once again the voice said, ''THERE ARE NO FISH UNDER THE ICE.''
The very scared blonde raised her head and said, ''Is that you, Lord?''
The voice answered, ''NO. IT IS THE MANAGER OF THE ICE RINK.''
Henry's son David, burst into the house, crying. His mother asked him what the problem was.
"Daddy and I were fishing, and he hooked a giant fish. Really big. Then, while he was reeling it in, the line busted and the fish got away."
"Now come on, David," his mother said,
"a big boy like you shouldn't be crying about an accident like that. You should have just laughed it off."
"But that's just what I did, mommy."
