A Talented Nigerian Display His Nigeria Acquired Business IQ In Canada

20

A young, well qualified Officer left the job in Lagos and emigrated to Canada for better prospects and applied for a salesman's job at Vancouver's premier downtown department store. It was the biggest store in the world: you could get anything there. The boss asked him, "Have you ever been a salesman before?" "Yes sir, I was a salesman in Nigeria The boss liked him and said, "You can start tomorrow. Learn fast and do well. " The first working day was long and arduous for the young man, but he got through it. Finally 6 pm came around. The boss duly fronted up and asked, "How many sales did you make today?" "Sir, I made ONE sale!" said the young salesman rather happily. "Only one sale?!" shot back the boss. "No! No! You see, most of my staff make 20 or 30 sales a day. If you want to keep this job, you'd better be doing better than just one sale. By the way, how much was your sale worth?" "$933,005.00", said the man. "What?! How did you manage that?" asked the flabbergasted boss. "Well," said the salesman, "this man came in and I sold him a small fish hook, then a medium hook and finally a really large hook. Then I sold him a good fishing rod and some fishing gear. Then I asked him where he was going fishing and he said down the coast. So I told him he'd be needing a boat, so I took him down to the boat department and sold him that 20-foot schooner with the twin engines. Then he said his Volkswagen wouldn't be able to carry it, so I took him to our automotive department and sold him that new Deluxe 4X4 Blazer. I then asked him where he'll be staying and since he had not decided, I took him to camping department and sold him a six-sleeper camper tent. Then he said I should throw in about $200 worth of groceries and two cases of juice." The boss took two steps back and asked in astonishment, "You sold all that to a guy who came in for a fish hook?!" "No, sir," answered the young man, "he came in to buy sanitary napkins for his wife and I convinced him that since he will be bored with his wife being in period - fishing is the best remedy for boredom." Boss: "Where did you acquiree this professional training?!" "Onitsha main market in Anambra sir." #copied Nigeria got talent!!!
