Day after day, Thibodeaux would watch as people went into Boudreaux's store, and leave with all kind of stuff they had bought. Thibodeaux just had to find out what Boudreaux's secret was. He walked across to see Boudreaux, and asked him, "Boudreaux, we got de only two stores in town. But you have all de customers, sell all kinds of stuff, and makin' tons of money. I ain't got no customers, I don't hardly sell nuttin', and I ain't makin' no money. What's your secret?"
Boudreaux tells him, "Mais, Thibodeaux, my fren, you gots to push de products." Thibodeaux asks, "What you mean, 'Push de products?' " Boudreaux tells him as he spots Ms. Hebert walk in to the store, "Watch, an' I'll show you." He walks over to her and says, "Mais, a very good morning to you, Ms. Hebert, what I can do for you on dis fine day?" Ms. Hebert says, "Mais hello dere Mr. Boudreaux. I'm jus as fine as fine can be. You got some of dat grass seed?" Boudreaux says, "Mais, sure, I got plenty of dem seed." He puts the seed on the counter and asks, "What you gonna do wid dat seed, Ms. Hebert?"
"Well, you know my front yard is all dirt, and I'm tired of all de dust, so I'm gonna plant me some grass." Boudreaux says, "Well if you gonna plant dem seed, you gonna need a hose and a sprinkler to water dem seed."
Ms. Hebert says, "You know, you right. You better give me dat too." Boudreaux says, "And you know, you should get some fertilizer to make dem seed grow." Ms. Hebert says, "Mais, O.K."
Boudreaux then says, "Ms. Hebert, you know, when dat grass starts growin' all green and tall, you gonna have to cut it. You gonna need a lawn mower, too." Thibodeaux's almost pee'd in his pants as she tells Boudreaux to sell her a lawn mower too.
As Ms. Hebert leaves with all her stuff, Boudreaux tells Thibodeaux, "See what I mean, Thib? She come in here for a fifty cents pack of seeds, and left wid five hundred dollars of stuff. Dats what I mean 'Push de product' ."
Thibodeaux goes back to his store mumbling to himself, "Push de product. Push de product." While he is waiting, he sees about ten more people walk into Boudreaux's store, and come out with all kinds of stuff. Finally, Mrs. Broussard comes into his store, and Thibodeaux thinks to himself, "Push de product." He says, "Mais, good morning, Mrs. Broussard. How are you on dis fine day?" She replies, "Well, I'm not doin' too good today. I started my 'monthlies' today, and I need some of dem Tampons. You got some?"
Thibodeaux, still thinking, "Push de product", runs to the back of the store, comes back with the Tampons, and says, Mrs, Broussard, you gonna need a lawn mower to go wid dem Tampons?" She asks, "What you mean I'm gonna need a lawn mower?"
Thibodeaux says, "Mais, I figure a woman in your condition can't do no foolin' around, so you might as well mow de grass!"
