The Story of the Two Shoe Salesmen
Two shoe salesmen were sent to an island to sell shoes.
The first salesman upon arrival was shocked to realize that no one wore shoes. Immediately he sent a telegram to his home office in Chicago saying, “Will return home tomorrow. No one wears shoes.”
The second salesman was thrilled by the same realization. Immediately he wired the home office in Chicago saying, “Please send me 10,000 shoes. Everyone here needs them.”
