A woman goes into a shop to buy a rod and reel as a gift
She doesn't know which one to get so she just grabs one and goes over to
the counter where there's a shop assistant wearing dark shades. "Excuse
me sir" she says "can you tell me anything about this rod and reel?"
The assistant replies "Ma'am I'm blind but if you drop it on the counter
I can tell you everything you need to know about it from the sound it
She didn't believe him, but dropped it on the counter anyway.
He said, "That's a 6' graphite rod with a Zebco 202 reel and 10 lb. test
line...It's a good all around rod and reel and it's only $20.00".
The lady said, "It's amazing that you can tell all that just by the
sound of it dropping on the counter. I think it's what I'm looking for
so I'll take it."
He walks behind the counter to the register, and in the meantime the
woman breaks wind big-time. At first she is embarrassed but then
realizes that there is no way he could tell it was her...being blind he
wouldn't know that she was the only person around.
The assistant rings up the sale and says, "That will be $25.50."
She says, "But didn't you say it was $20.00?"
"Yes ma'am, the rod and reel is $20.00, but the duck call is $3.00, and the catfish stink bait is $2.50."
