Sales Joke of the Day (September 16) The Prank.

The salesman had always been the office prankster.  As each of his co-workers were married, the salesman made sure some type of practical joke was played upon them.  Now, ready to be married himself, the salesman is dreading the payback he knows is coming.

Surprisingly, the ceremony goes off without a hitch.  No one stands up during the pause to offer a reason "why this couple should not be married."  His reception isn't disrupted by streakers or strippers, and the car the couple is to take on their honeymoon is in perfect working order.

When the couple arrives at their hotel and enters the room, the salesman even checks for cornflakes in the bed, a gag he always loved, but finds nothing.  Satisfied that he has come away unscathed, the couple falls into bed and puts their attention into consummating their union.

Upon waking after an active night, the newlywed couple is starved so the salesman calls down to room service and asks, "Can I get a breakfast for two?"   Before he is able to hang up, however, a soft voice from under the bed says,

"Better make that five."

Moral of the story.    True sales professionals know that in order to be successful at sales you need to be putting in a full day's work every day.    And in any given week you "better make that five."

"Find a job you like and you add five days to every week."    -    H. Jackson Brown Jr.
