He figured that couldn’t such a bad job, so he calls the number in the advertisement, goes for an interview and they hire him.
The next day, he heads out to a neighborhood to make some sales.
Five hours later he comes home and says, “Man, I only sold one toothbrush. That’s not going to give me enough to live on”.
So, the next day he goes to a richer neighborhood, thinking maybe those people would buy more toothbrushes.
He ends up selling two toothbrushes, not much better really and he is getting really frustrated.
So he goes to his boss for advice and his boss says to him, “Look, you’re a great guy and all, but you have got to come up with a gimmick or something”.
So, the salesman thinks about it and, later that night, he finally comes up with one.
The next day, he sets up a booth near the subway with a sign that says “Free chips and dip”.
A guy walks over, picks up a chip, puts the chip in the dip and says, “Oh my God, this tastes like shit”.
The salesman replied, “Yes it does. Would you like to buy a toothbrush?”
