Sales Joke of the Day (May 3) The Woods.

Two used car salesmen, Ted and Mike were out walking in the woods when Ted turned to Mike and said: "I really need to take a dump."

"There's a tree," said Mike.  "Why don't you just go behind that?"

Ted looked at the tree and said: "But I don't have any toilet paper."

"You've got a dollar haven't you?" asked Mike.  "You can wipe yourself with that."

Reluctantly Ted took his advice, disappeared behind the tree and did his business.  Minutes later he came back with stuff  all over his hands.

"What happened?" asked Mike.  "Were you too cheap to use a dollar?"

"No, I wasn't too cheap to use a dollar!" said Ted.  "But have you ever tried to wipe with three quarters, two dimes and a nickel!"

Moral of the story.   True sales professionals know that it's a good idea to always have hand sanitizer nearby.   After all, in sales,  when aren't we shaking someone's hand or counting out change.
