An elderly man came into a shop with a ‘Salesman Wanted’ sign in a window.
He went up to the owner & said, “I-I-I w-w-wanna-t the j-joooob-b.”
“I don’t know if this job would suit you because of your speaking impediment,” said the owner.
“I h-h-havvve a w-wi-wiiiife & s-s-s-six k-kkkids, iiii-I re-really neeeed thi-thi-this j-j-job!” said the man.
“O.K. Here are three Bibles. Go out & sell them.” said the owner.
So the man went out & came back an hour later.
“H-here-sss your m-m-money.” said the elderly man.
The owner was impressed, so he gave the man a dozen more Bibles & sent him out.
The man came back in two hours & said,
“Her-ers y-yooour m-m-money.”
The owner said,
“This is fantastic. You sold more Bibles in three hours than anyone has sold in a week. Tell me, what do you say to the people when they come to the door?”
“W-welllll,” said the old man,
“I r-r-ring the d-door bell, a-a-and s-s-say ‘H-Hel-Hello, M-m-maaaaddam, d-d-do you w-w- want t-t-t-to buy thi-thi-this B-B-Bible, oooor d-d-do y-you w-w-want m’me t-toooo read it t-t-t-t-to you?
