A newly hired traveling salesman wrote his first report to the home office. It stunned the brass in the sales department because it was obvious the new man was a blithering illiterate. Here's what he wrote....

Dere Bos-

I have seen this outfit which ain't never bot a dimes worth of nothing frum us and I sole them a couple hunerd thousand dolars of guds. I am now going to Chicawgo.

Before the illiterate could be given the heave-ho by the sales manager, this letter came from Chicago.

I cum here and sole 'em a haff millyon.

Fearful if he did and fearful if he didn't fire the illiterate, the sales manager dumped the problem in the lap of the president.

The following morning the ivory tower members were amazed to see those two letters posted on the bulletin board. And this memo from the president.

We ben spending two much time trying to spel instead of trying to sel. Let's watch thoes sails. I want everybody shud reed these leters frum Gooch, who is on the rode doin a grate job for us, and you shud go out and do like he duz.
