|HOW TO SELL ... TOOTHBRUSHES |
The kids filed back into class Monday morning. They were very excited,Their weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a talk on
Little Sally led off, "I sold Girl Scout cookies and I made $30.00," she said proudly, "My sales approach was to appeal to the customer's
civil sprit and I credit that approach for my obvious success."
"Very good," said the teacher.
Little Jenny was next. "I sold magazines," she said, "I made $45.00 and I explained to everyone that magazine's would keep the up on current events."
"Very good Jenny," said the teacher.
Eventually, it was little Johnny's turn. The teacher held her breath. Little Johnny walked up to the front of the classroom and dumped a box full of cash on the teacher's desk. "$2,467.00", he said.
"$2,467.00!", cried the teacher, "What in the world were you selling?"
"Toothbrushes", said little Johnny.
"Toothbrushes", echoed the teacher. "How could you sell enough toothbrushes to make that much money?"
"I found the busiest corner in town", said little Johnny. "I set up a Dip & Chip stand and I gave everybody who walked by a FREE sample."They all said the same thing, "Hey this tastes like dog shit!" Then I would say, "It is dog shit. Wanna buy a toothbrush"? Little Johnny continued, "I used the government approach of giving you something shitty that they say is good, and then making you pay to get the shitty taste out of your mouth."
