This door-to-door entrepreneur became rather bored with his job of selling Bibles, so he decided to become a boss, hiring three people to sell Bibles for him.
He interviewed three people. The first came in and said, “I want to sell Bibles for you.” “OK, you’re hired. Here’s your kit; go sell!”
The second came in and said, “I want to sell Bibles for you.” “OK, you’re hired! Here’s your kit; go sell!”
The third came in and said, “I- i – I wa – wa- wa-want t-t-t-t-to s-s-s-s-ell to sell, to sell, to sell, Bi – bi – bi – Bibles, sell Bi -Bibles f-f-f-fo-for y-y-y-y you Bibles for you!”
“No, I am terribly sorry” says the man, “this will never work! You can’t sell Bibles for me!” The applicant replied, “B-b-b-b-but I r-r-r-eall, but I really, really, n-n-n-n-need th-th-th-this, really need tthis job!”
As there were no other applicants and he felt sorry for him, the man said, “OK, I’ll give you one shot at this!”
At the end of the day, the first applicant comes back and reports, “I sold 8 Bibles today.”
The second reports: “I sold 11 Bibles today.
The third worker reports, “To-to-to-to t-t-today, I-i-I so- so, I so-, I so-, I so- I sold 28 Bi- bi- b- bibles!”
“Wow,” says the boss. “That’s incredible, however, I want you to sell even more Bibles tomorrow.”
At the end of the next day, the first worker comes in and reports, “Today, I sold 32 Bibles.”
The second worker reports, “I sold 44 Bibles today”
The third worker reports, “To-to-to t-today, I-i-I so- so, I so-, I sold 79 Bi-bi-bi- sold 79, sold 79 Bibles.”
“Fantastic,” said the boss. Getting curious how he can make such great sales with his speaking problem, he asks him what his sales technique is.
“I-i-I j-j-j-j-ju-ju-ju-just wa, wa, wa, just wal- wa- wa- walk, just walk up to up to up to just walk up to them and and ask, them and ask, them and ask if th-th-th-th ask if they w-w-w-w-w- wa- ask if they want t-t-t-t-o-o- if they want to b–b-b-b-b if they want to buy a Bi-bi – want to buy a Bi–b–a – a- abi – buy a to buy a Bi-bi-bible, or d-d-d-d-d do th-th-they do they w-w-w-ant me to ***READ*** it to ’em?”
