A lady goes into a 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 behind the counter and asks, "Can I help you ma'am?"
"Well, I'd like to buy a fishing rod, can you tell me about this one?" she replies.
The salesman replies, "I'm sorry ma'am but I am blind and cannot see the rod you're referring to. However, if you'll drop it on the counter, I'll tell you all about it as I can tell rods by the sound they make."
So the lady picks up the rod and drops it on the counter.
"That's a Zebco 2500, fiberglass, 6'2" long, medium action - costs $55.95," he says.
The lady is amazed. She asks if she can try again. Finding another rod, she drops it on the counter.
"That's an Orion 35C, graphite, saltwater casting rod, 7' even - costs $135.00," he responds.
Impressed, the lady decides to buy the second rod. As the blind clerk is ringing up the sale, the lady walks a short distance away to look at fishing reels. As she returns to the counter, she cannot help herself, and makes a distintive sound as she passes gas. Embarrassed, but figuring the clerk will have no idea who did it, she elects not to apologize.
Finished with the sales tally, the clerk says, "That will be $170.00"
"What?" says the lady. "You said the rod was only $135.00."
"That's right ma'am," says the clerk. "$135.00 for the rod, $30.00 for the duck call, and $5.00 for the bait."
