Jokes: Solution Providers

Solution Providers

A young guy from Texas moves to California and goes to a big department store looking for a job.

The manager says, "Do you have any sales experience?" The boy says, "Yeah, I was a salesman back home in Texas." Well, the boss liked the boy, so he gave him the job. "You start tomorrow. I will come down after we close and see how you did."

His first day on the job was rough, but he got through it.

After the store was locked up, the boss came down. "How many sales did you make today?" The boy says, "One."

The boss says, "Just one? Our sales people average 20 or 30 sales a day. How much was the sale for?" Boy says, "$101,237.64." Boss says, "$101,237.64? What did you sell?"

Boy says, "First I sold him a small fish hook. Then I sold him a medium fish hook. Then I sold him a larger fish hook. Then I sold him a new fishing rod. 

Then I asked him where he was going fishing, and he said down at the coast, so I told him he was gonna need a boat, so we went down to the boat department, and I sold him that twin engine Chris Craft. Then he said he did not think his Honda Civic would pull it, so I took him down to the automotive department and sold him that 4X4 Blazer."

The boss said, "A guy came in here to buy a fish hook and you sold him a boat and truck?"

Boy says, “We were both solution providers. He solved my problems on how to make huge sales and I solved his problem of not knowing what he wants” 

Twin Brothers

A General of the US Air Force decided that he would personally intervene in the recruiting crisis affecting all of the US armed services.

As he and his staff were standing near a brand new F-15 Fighter, a pair of twin brothers who looked like they had just stepped off a Marine Corps recruiting class walked up to them. The chief of staff walked up to them, stuck out his hand and introduced himself.

He looked at the first young man and asked, "Son, what skills can you bring to the Air Force?"

The young man looks at him and says, "I am a pilot!"

The general gets all excited, turns to his aide and says, "Sign him today, do all the paper work get on with it"

The aide hustles the young man off. The general looks at the second young man and asked, "What skills to you bring to the Air Force?" The young man says, "I chop wood!"

"Son," the general replies, "we don't need wood choppers in the Air Force, what do you know how to do?"

"I chop wood!"

 "Young man," huffs the general, "you are not listening to me, we do not need wood choppers. This is the 20th century!"

"Well," the young man says, "you hired my brother!"

"Of course we did," says the general, "he is a pilot!"

The young man rolls his eyes and says, "Dang it, I have to chop it before he can pile it!"
