A man got a job selling toothbrushes
A man was down on his luck and in desperate need of a job.
He saw an advertisement in the newspaper for a job in sales.
He didn’t know anything about sales but figured he could learn, so he contacted the company.
“It’s very simple,” said the hiring manager. “You go door-to-door selling toothbrushes. Everyone needs a toothbrush, you should be able to sell lots of them.”
The man agreed and went out to a large housing tract for the day. When he returned to the office, he was asked how his day went.
“I sold one toothbrush,” he said.
The hiring manager was not happy. “Look, I know it’s your first day in sales, so I’ll forgive it this time. But you gotta sell more than one if you want to keep your job.”
The next day, the man went to another neighborhood. When he returned to the office at the end of the day he said, “I sold two toothbrushes today!”
Now the hiring manager was furious. “It is far from enough! You have one more day to get this right. If you don’t sell a lot more tomorrow, you’re fired.”
When the man came back to the office at the end of the next day, he was again asked how he did. “I sold 1500 toothbrushes!” he announced.
“Oh my God!” said the hiring manager. “That’s amazing. It’s more than anyone has ever sold in one day before. How did you do it?”
“Well,” he began, “I went to a grocery store and set up a table outside with some chips and some dip. And I asked people to try them. They would taste it and say, ‘This dip tastes like s-h.it!”
And I would say, “It is! Would you like to buy a toothbrush?”
LOL!! A dumb joke is still a good funny joke!!
A salesman returns from his assignment in Saudi Arabia
A salesman returns from his assignment in Saudi Arabia where he went to sell them a new brand of Coca-Cola.
Seeing his crestfallen face, a friend asks him: “Why the long face?”
The salesman replied: “I failed in Saudi Arabia, the campaign was a total failure.”
“Why is that?” Asked the friend, “I thought you had a good campaign running.”
“Well, when I got posted there, I was very confident that I would make a great sales pitch for the Saudis. But I had a problem – I didn’t speak Arabic, so I planned to convey the meaning of the message with the use of three images: First poster: A man lying in the hot desert sand in utter exhaustion, he has fainted. Second poster: The man is drinking the new Coca-Cola brand. Third poster: Our man is now totally refreshed and feeling great. I had these posters pasted all over the place. You couldn’t go anywhere without seeing them.”
“Great! That should have worked!” said the friend.
“The heck it should have!” said the salesman. “Only no one told me they read from right to left!!”
Hope this joke will make you smile! Have a nice day!!
