Daily Joke: Salesman Offers His Client a Present
Clinching that first deal with a potential new client can sometimes be an uphill battle, as a sales representative quickly found out from a store manager in today's hilarious daily joke. Enjoy!
Bill stopped by a small manufacturing plant he spotted during his last trip through a part of the countryside in the hopes of gaining another client in the area.
However, little did Bill, who boasts with the best sales record in the company, know that the plant manager was going to be a tough customer to please.
With a broad smile and a reassuring tone, Bill handed the plant manager a beautiful box of cigars as a gift, but the man barely gave it a sideways glance before he said, "No cigars for me, thank you. I smoked one once, and it was horrible."
Bill is nothing if not prepared, so he offered to take the plant manager out for a few beers, but again the suggestion missed the mark. "No alcohol for me, thank you. I drank it once, and it was horrible."
Not ready to give up just yet, Bill got a bright idea as he looked out the window and saw people playing golf. "That's quite alright," he told the plant manager. "How about you come and play a round of golf at my club as my personal guest?"
However, for the third time, Bill's luck struck out, as the plant manager replied, "No golf for me, thank you. I played the sport once, and it was horrible." The plant manager had barely finished his sentence when a young man joined them at the table.
"Let me introduce my son, Jason," the plant manager said. Surprised, Bill gave the young man a quick once over before he replied, "Let me guess, he is an only child?"
Even though the plant manager found a limited amount of things enjoyable, a man working at another company turned out to be the exact opposite in another daily joke.
The morning after an office party, Jack woke up feeling the effects of his carefree drinking through the pounding of his head, but after popping a few aspirins, he soon remembered that drinking is not the only thing he indulged in the night before.
