True story in Readers Digest:
A fellow said his brother had applied for a job as a salesman in a funiture store. All of the applicants were lined up in the hall outside the hiring manager's office and being interviewed one by one.
The fellow's brother said, "Heck with it", and instead of waiting his turn he simply went out on the floor and started selling. By the time his turn came up to be interviewed, he'd sold several thousand dollars worth of furniture.
He got the job.
