Robert Denk, quoted by Judy Wells Martin in Jacksonville, Florida, Times-Union
An elderly man stopped at a hearing aid center and asked about prices. "We have them from $25,000 down to $1.50," the salesman said.
"What's the $25,000 one like?"
"Well, it translates three languages."
"And what about the one for $1.50?"
"It's this button attached to a string," said the salesman, pushing it across the counter.
"How does it work?"
"It doesn't. But if you put the button in your ear and the string in your pocket, you'll be surprised how loud people will talk."
