Such a Smart Young Man!
The teacher gave her students a weekend assignment. It was to sell something, and then give a talk on
how they did and what they had learned about salesmanship.
Little Sally led off. "I sold Girl Scout cookies and I made $30" she said proudly. My sales approach was to appeal to the customer's civil spirit,and I credit that approach for my obvious success."
"Very good", said the teacher.
Little Debbie was next. "I sold magazines" she said. "I made $45 and I explained to everyone that magazines would keep them up on current events."
