Marry The Guy Who Has 60% Sales Commission.

One day, the daughter came running to her mum ...

Daughter: "Mum, I am not sure who should I marry?"
Daughter: "The Property agent guy or Insurance agent guy, and both guys are earning from Sales commission."

Mum: "What are their Sales commission rate like?"

Daughter: "Oh, the Property guy earns 1% while the Insurance guy earns 60%"

Mum: "Don't be silly, marry the guy with 60% sales commission"

Daughter: "Why?"

Mum: "Why you so stupid?"

     "The insurance guy's commission is 60 times the commission of the property guy"

     "60 is so much bigger than 1"

     "You don't know how to count meh?"

Daughter: "Hmm... but the property guy made 1% out of $1M property transaction while the insurance guy made 60% out of $5K premium"

Mum: "ooch"

Do you think like the Mother?
