Salespeople in beach stores have excellent sales skills. (1:32)

I DID GET OUT OF THE ARMY

AND WENT TO HAWAII.

EVENTUALLY I WENT TO HAWAII.

YOU BEEN THERE BEFORE?

IT'S BEAUTIFUL.

THE TRAVEL AGENT TOLD US STAY

OFF THE BEACH A WAYS AND SAVE

SOME CASH.

YEAH.

GIVE YOU AN IDEA HOW FAR OFF

THE BEACH WE WERE...

WE WERE IN JERSEY.

[LAUGHTER]

AND YOU KNOW WHAT?

THEY'RE A LITTLE RUDE IN THAT

PART OF HAWAII.

"HEY, TAKE YOUR FLIPPERS OFF

IN THE LOBBY THERE!

HEY!

HEY, THERE."

I'M AD-LIBBING.

"HEY!"

[LAUGHTER]

I GOT TO HONOLULU.

I'M IN A KNICKKNACK SHOP AND

I GOT MY EYE ON A HULA GIRL

FOR THE DASHBOARD IN MY CAR.

THE WOMAN WORKING AT THE

KNICKKNACK SHOP, SHE GRABS ONE

OF THE HULA GIRLS, SHE LOOKS

AT ME AND SHE GOES, "HEY, $14,

YOU."

WHICH IS AWESOME

SALESPERSON-SHIP.

[LAUGHTER]

I MEAN, HEY, $14.

THAT'S GOT ALL THE ELEMENTS

OF GOOD SALESPERSON-SHIP.

IT'S AGGRESSIVE: "HEY."

IT'S BARGAINING: "$14."

AND IT'S PERSONAL:

"YOU."

[LAUGHTER]

YOU DON'T TEACH THAT BULL.

YOU GET THAT WHEN YOU'RE BORN.

YOU DON'T HAVE IT.

I TRIED TALKIN' HER DOWN,

I SAID, "WHAT ABOUT $10 ME?"

[LAUGHTER]

SHE SAID, "NO, $12.50 YOU."

I EVENTUALLY SAID, "SCREW YOU."

SHE SAID, "$200, YOU."

[LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE]

I SAID, "OKAY."

AND SHE SAID, "I'M JUST PLAYIN'

WITH YA, LADDIE."
