You Owe It To Your Customers
Jewish salesman’s “Merchandise On Credit” policy

It was a Monday morning and the Jewish salesman still had to make his first sale. Lately business was terrible.

He talked his first customer into selecting merchandise to the value of $200. The customer said, “Sorry, I can’t take this order as I’ve only got $100 with me.”

The salesman was so anxious to make the sale that he said, “You look like a man who would keep his word. Why don’t you take the merchandise and solemnly promise to owe me the rest.”
The customer agreed.

Three months later, the salesman began to try to collect the balance.

The debtor wrote a letter saying, “When I paid you the $100, you made me promise to owe you the balance. I’m trying to keep my word and owe you. Why are you trying so hard to make me break my word?”
