A clerk


A jobless man applied for the place of ‘Clerk’ at a very big organization.

The supervisor questioned him, then a test: clean the floor.

“You are employed.” – The supervisor said. “Give me your email address, and I’ll send you the application to fill, as well as when you will begin.”

The man responded, “I don’t have a laptop or computer, neither an email.”

“I’m sorry,” said the supervisor, “if you don’t have an email that means you do not exist. And who doesn’t exist, are unable to have the job.”

The man left with no hope. He didn’t know what to do, with only $10 USD in his pocket.

He then made the decision to go to the grocery store, bought a 10kg tomato crate, then sold the tomato vegetables door to door. In less than two hours, he A clerk succeeded and more than doubled his capital.

He repeated the operation 3 times and returned home with $60 USD. The man realized that he could survive by this way, and started to go daily earlier, and returned late. Thus, his money more than doubled or tripled everyday. Shortly later, he bought a cart, then a truck, and then he had his own fleet of supply vehicles.

Five years later, the man’s company was one of the greatest food retailers. He started to plan his family’s future, and made the decision to have a life insurance.

He called an insurance broker and chose a security plan. When the conversation was concluded, the agent asked him his email. The man responded: “I don’t have an email.”

The broker replied surprisingly, “You don’t have an email, and yet have been successful to build an empire. Do you imagine what you could have done if you had an email?”

The man paused for a while, and responded: “A Clerk!”
