A woman went into a Bass Pro shop to buy a rod and reel for her husband’s Christmas present. She wasn’t sure which one to get so she just grabbed one and went to the register where an associate was standing there with dark shades on.
“Excuse me sir,” asked the woman. “Can you tell me anything about this rod and reel?”
The man replied, “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 that it makes.”
Fascinated by his claim, the woman let the rod and reel plop on the counter.
Without hesitation, the man informed her, “That’s a 6′ graphite rod with Zebco 202 reel and 10 lb. test line. It’s a good all around rod and reel and it’s on sale today for $20.00.”
“That’s amazing!” the woman exclaimed. “It sounds just like what I’m looking for, and I’ll take it.”
When the clerk ducked under the counter to get a shopping bag, the woman let out a fart. At first she was embarrassed but quickly realized that there is no way the blind clerk could tell it was her since she was not the only person in the vicinity.
As the man rang up the order he said, “That will be $25.50.”
“I thought you said it was only $20.00?” the woman replied.
“Yes ma’am, the rod and reel is $20.00,” explained the clerk, “but the duck call is $3.00, and the catfish stink bait is $2.50!”
