This man works as a salesman, and every year he goes to the salesman`s dinner/dance. At the end of the evening, the award is made to the salesman-of-the-year. This year, as for the last three, the award goes to Brian Smith, who collects the award without giving a speech. The man waits until after the dinner and then hunts out Brian. Man: Hello, you`re Brian Smith aren`t you? Brian: Yyyyyyyyyyes, Thhhhhhhhhhaatsss Rrrrrrright! (He has a terrible stutter BTW) At this the man is somewhat taken aback. Man: Don`t you find any problems having a stutter like that. Brian: Nnnnnnnno, not rrrrrrreally. Man: But how do you manage to win the Salesman Of The Year award year after year?
