A woman goes into a shop to buy a rod and reel for her grandson's birthday. She doesn't know which one to get so she just grabs one and goes over to the counter. An assistant is standing there with dark shades on. She says, "Excuse me sir, can you tell me anything about this rod and reel?" He says, "Ma'am, I'm completely blind, but if you'll drop it on the counter I can tell you everything you need to know about it from the sound it makes."
She doesn't believe him, but drops it on the counter anyway. He says, "That's a six-foot Shakespeare graphite rod with Zebco 404 reel and 10-pound test line... It's a good all around combination and it's on sale this week for only £20.00."
She says, "That's amazing that you can tell all that just by the sound of it dropping on the counter; I'll take it." The woman opens her purse and sees her credit card holder drop on the floor.
As she bends down to pick it up she accidentally farts. At first she is really embarrassed, but then concludes there is no way he could tell that she was the one who farted, being blind, he wouldn't know that.
The man rings up the sale and says, "That'll be £34.50 please." The woman is totally confused by this and says, "Didn't you tell me was on special for £20.00? How did you get it to £34.50?"
He replies, "Yes Ma'am, for the rod and reel its £20.00; but the duck call is £11.00 and the fish bait is £3.50."
