After being away on business, Tim thought it would be nice to bring his wife a little gift.
“How about some perfume?” he asks the cosmetics clerk.
She shows him a bottle costing $50.00.
“That’s a bit much,” says Tim, so she returns with a smaller bottle for $30.00.
“That’s still quite a bit,” Tim complains.
Growing annoyed, the clerk brings out a tiny $15.00 bottle.
“What I mean,” says Tim, “is I’d like to see something really cheap.”
…The clerk hands him a mirror.
