The Winking Sales Man

Published on Wed 19 January 2000

A man went in for an interview for a job as a sales man. The interview went quite well, but the trouble was that he kept winking.

The interviewer said, "Although you have a lot of the qualities we are looking for, the fact that you keep winking could put a lot of our potential customers off."

"Oh, that is no problem," said the man. "I stop winking if I take a couple of aspirin."

"Show me," said the interviewer.

So the man reached into his pocket. Embarrassingly he pulled out loads of condoms of every variety - ribbed, flavoured, coloured and everything before he found the packet of aspirin. He took an aspirin and soon stopped winking.

The interviewer said, "I do not think we could employ someone who would be womanizing all over the country."

"Excuse me!" exclaimed the man, "I am a happily married man, not a womanizer!"

"Well, how do you explain all the condoms, then?" asked the interviewer.

The man replied, "Have you ever gone into a drug store, winking, and asked for a packet of aspirin?"
