The oldest profession is not the type of business that is run on a credit basis - it is strictly cash and carry. Therefore, it was unusual to hear one of the girls tell the following to her roommate:
"I had a customer today who promised me a seventeen carat ring, a twenty-one carat bracelet, and a thirty-two carat necklace."
The other girl cautioned, "Watch out, dearie. With all those carats he'll expect you to act like a rabbit!"
