The Tie

Back Next

A rather elderly lady wandered into a haberdashery.

"I want to see some ties," said she.

The salesman showed her a large assortment. "I'll take this green one," she declared.

"I'd like to make a sale, lady," admitted the salesman, "but I don't believe that your husband would wear that kind of tie because it's an off-shade green."

"Listen," she said, "he'll wear anything I buy for him -- it's for his funeral ..."

---------------A Final Thought ...

"Egotist. A person of low taste, more interested in himself than me."
