How to Sell a Watch

A man walks into a Swiss watch store, looking fairly normal, and probably not old enough to buy a real Swiss watch anyway.  An incredibly polished salesperson approaches him.

S: “Can I help you, sir?”

“Oh no, I’m just looking.  I’m a student and can’t afford these watches anyway.”

S: “Not a problem, please let me know if there is anything I can do.”

(Salesman notices potential customer admiring a particular watch, valued at around $20,000)

S: “Would you care to try it on?”

“No no, I’m just looking.”

S: “It’s not a problem…please….allow me.”

(Salesperson takes the watch out, gracefully places it on man’s wrist.  It’s gorgeous.)

S: “Lovely……………………………………………..isn’t it?”

S: “A man who invested in such a watch would certainly make a statement for future generations.”

I have to admit…he was good.  Very good.
