The Salesman


A man came into a shop with a 'Salesman Wanted' sign in a window. He
went up to the owner and said, "I-I-I w-w-waannn-t the j-joooob-b."

"I don't know if this job would suit you because of your speaking 
impediment," said the owner. 

"I h-h-havvve a w-wi-wiiiife and s-s-s-six k-kkkids, iiii-I re-really 
neeeed thi-thi-this j-j-job!" said the man. 

"O.K. Here are three Bibles. Go out and sell them." said the owner.

So the man went out and came back an hour later. "H-here-sss your 
m-m-money." said the man. 

The owner was impressed, so he gave the man a dozen more Bibles and 
sent him out. The man came back in two hours and said, "Her-ers 
y-yooour m-m-money."

The owner said, "This is fantastic. You sold more Bibles in three hours 
than anyone has sold in a week. Tell me, what do you say to the people 
when they come to the door?"

"W-welllll," said the man, "I r-r-ring the d-door bell, a-a-and s-s-say 
'H-Hel-Hello, M-m-maaaaddam, d-d-do you w-w- want t-t t-to buy thi-thi-this 
B-B-Bible, oooor d-d-do y-you w-w-want m'me t-toooo read it t-t-t-t-to you?"
