Sid Needham walked into an insurance office and asks for a job.
“We don’t need anyone” the manager told him.
“You can’t afford not to hire me. I can sell anything to anyone, anytime, anywhere!”
“Well we have two prospects that none of our agents has been able to sell. If you can sell just one, you have a job.”
Ole Sid was gone about two hours, and returned and handed them not one, but two checks, one for a $50,000.00 policy and another or $100,000.00.
“How in the world did you do that ?” they asked.
“I told you I’m the world’s best salesman, I can sell anything to anyone, any time any where!”
“OK. Did you get a urine sample?” the manager asked.
“What urine sample?” asked Sid.
“If you sell a policy over $49,999.00 the company requires a urine sample. Here, take these two bottles and go back and get urine samples.”
Sid dashed out, thrilled with his success and eager to complete the job. He was gone about 5 hours and they were fixing to close when in he walks in with two five gallon buckets, one in each hand. He sets the buckets down, and reaches in his shirt pocket and produces two bottles of urine, and sets them on the desk and says, “Here’s Mr. Swanson’s and this one is Mr. Frieden’s.”
“Thats good” they said, “but what is in those two buckets?”
“Well, I passed by the Holiday Inn and they were having The City Teachers Convention, so I stopped and sold them a group policy!”
