A store manager Bob stopped by a small manufacturing plant he spotted during his last trip through a part of the countryside in the hopes of gaining another client in the area.
However, little did Bob know that the plant manager was going to be a tough customer to please.
With a broad smile and a reassuring tone, Bob handed the plant manager a beautiful box of cigars as a gift, but the man barely gave it a sideways glance before he said,
“No cigars for me, thank you.
I smoked one once, and it was horrible.”
Bob is nothing if not prepared, so he offered to take the plant manager out for a few beers, but again the suggestion missed the mark.
“No alcohol for me, thank you. I drank it once, and it was horrible.”
Not ready to give up just yet, Bob got a bright idea as he looked out the window and saw people playing golf.
“That’s quite alright,” he told the plant manager.
“How about you come and play a round of golf at my club as my personal guest?”
However, for the third time, Bob’s luck struck out, as the plant manager replied,
“No golf for me, thank you. I played the sport once, and it was horrible.
” The plant manager had barely finished his sentence when a young man joined them at the table.
“Let me introduce my son, Jason,”
the plant manager said. Surprised, Bob gave the young man a quick once over before he replied,
“Let me guess, he is an only child?”
