Nobody Has Shoes Here

shoesA large Eastern show manufacturer bought an island off the coast of Africa. They sent their two top salesmen, Bob and Joe, to the island to open a store and develop shoe business on the island. The day after he arrived Bob texted his boss at the home office. “Leaving tomorrow on the first flight out. This was a mistake. Nobody has shoes here.”

The same day Joe texted his boss at the home office: “Send a whole shipment of shoes to me as soon as you can,” he said.. “Nobody has shoes here.”

Sometimes attitude is everything.

Editor's Note: Saddle shoes are the trademark of my lifetime friend Chuck Offenburger who's been wearing them since grammar school. Chuck runs, one of Iowa's oldest Internet news and opinion sites.
