A young Aussie lad moved to London and went into 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 him so said he would give him a day's trial in the store.
His first day on the job was challenging and busy, at the end of the shift, the Manager came over and asked "ok so how any 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?"
"125,000 pounds" replied the Aussie.
"WTF??? exclaimed the Manager - what on earth did you sell?"
"A small fish hook, then a medium one and then a fishing rod. I said if he were going fishing he would need a boat. We went down to the boat department and I sold him a twin engine Power Cat. Then he said he didn't think his Honda Civic would tow it, so I took him down to car sales and I sold him a Suzuki 4x4."
The Manager, incredulous, said "you mean to tell me a guy came in to buy a fish hook and you sold him a boat and a car? "
"No no no. He came in to the pharmacy department to buy a box of tampons for his girlfriend and I said well, since your weekend's buggered you may as well go fishing."
