Little Johnny - The Salesman****

The kids filed into class Monday morning. They were very excited. Their
weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a talk on productive
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 Jenny was next: "I sold magazines" she said, "I made $45 and I
explained to everyone that magazines would keep them 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 to the front of the classroom and dumped a box full
of cash on the teacher's desk. "$2,467" he said.

"$2,467!" cried the teacher, "What in the world were you selling?"

Toothbrushes" said Little Johnny.

"Toothbrushes?" echoed the teacher, "How could you possibly sell enough
tooth brushes to make that much money?"

"I found the busiest corner in town" said Little Johnny, "I set up a
Chip and Dip stand, and I gave everybody who walked by a free sample.
They all said the same thing, 'Hey, this tastes like dog crap!' Then I
would say, 'It is dog crap! Wanna buy a toothbrush?' I used the
President Obama method of giving you something shitty, dressing it up so
it looks good, telling you it's free and then making you pay to get the
bad taste out of your mouth.****

Never, ever criticize someone until you have walked a mile in their shoes........for at that point they will be a mile away. And you'll have their shoes !
