A lady goes into the local sporting goods store to buy a fishing rod to give to her husband for his birthday. A salesman wearing dark glasses with a dog is standing behind the counter and he asks, "Can I help you madam ?"

"Well, I'd like to buy a fishing rod, can you tell me about this one?" she answers. The salesman replies, "I'm sorry madam but I am blind and can not see the rod you're referring too. However, if you'll drop it on the counter I'll tell you all about it, since I can tell from the sound it makes".

The lady picks up the rod, and does what he says and drops it on the counter. He belts out, "'That's a Zebco 2500, fibreglass, 6.5', medium action -$15."


She finds another and does the same. "That's an Orion 35C, graphite, 6', light action - best used with ultralight tackle - $20." Very impressed, the lady decides to buy the second one. As the man is ringing up the sale, the lady makes a rather large noise as she passes gas but feels no need to apologize as the salesman is blind and has no idea who she is.

The salesman says, "That'll be $25." "TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS!? YOU SAID $20!!" "That's right madam, $20 for the rod, $3 for the duck call, and $2 for the fish bait."
