Salesmanship...or Marwadiship

ONLY a real Marwadi can accomplish this:

A keen immigrant Marwadi lad applied for a salesman's job at London's
premier department store Harrod's. It was the biggest store in the
world and you could get anything there. The boss asked him, "Have you
ever been a salesman before?"

"Yes sir, I was a salesman in Rajasthan in India", replied the boy.

The boss liked the cut of him and said, "You can start tomorrow and
I'll come and see you later."

The day was long and arduous for the young man, but he got through it.

And finally evening came around. The boss came and asked him, "How
many sales did you make today?"

"Just ONE, Sir." said the young salesman. "Only one sale?" blurted the
boss. "No! No! You see here, 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 the sale worth?"

30,0534.00 pounds" said the young Marwari.

"What"," How did you manage that?" asked the flabbergasted boss.

"Well", said the Marwadi, "This man came in and I sold him a small
fish hook, then I sold him a medium hook and finally a really large
hook. Then I sold him a new fishing rod and some fishing gear. Then I
asked him where he was going fishing and he said "just down the
So I told him he'd be needing a boat, and took him down to the
boat department, where I sold him that twenty-foot schooner with the
twin engines. Then he said his Volkswagen probably wouldn't be able to
pull it, so I took him to our automotive department and sold him the
new Deluxe 4X4 Blazer..

I then asked him where he'll be staying, and since he had no accommodation, I took him to the camping section and sold him one of
those new Igloo 6-sleeper camper tents. Then the guy said, while we're
at it, I should throw in about $100 worth of groceries and two cases
of beer."

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" answered the Marwadi, "He came in to buy a box of Sanitary
napkins for his wife and I said to him, "Sir, Your weekends screwed
anyway, you might as well go fishing!!!"
