Christmas Shopping Illustration: There are several men in the locker room of a private club after exercising. Suddenly a cell phone on one of the benches rings. A man picks it up and the following conversation ensues:
"Honey, It's me."
"Are you at the club?"
"Great! I'm at the mall doing some Christmas shopping and I saw a beautiful mink coat. It is absolutely gorgeous!! Can I buy it?"
"What's the price?"
"Only $1,500."
"Well, okay, go ahead and get it, if you like it that much."
"Ahhh, and I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the 2001 models. I saw one I really liked. I spoke with the salesman and he gave me a really good price. . .and since we need to exchange the BMW that we bought last year. . ."
"What price did he quote you?"
"Only $60,000!"
"Okay, but for that price I want it with all the options."
"Great! Before we hang up, something else. . ."
"It might seem like a lot, but I was reconciling your bank account and. . .well, I stopped by to see the real estate agent this morning and I saw the house we had looked at last year. It's on sale!! Remember? The one with a pool, English garden, acre of park area, beachfront property. . ."
"How much are they asking?"
"Only $450,000. . .a magnificent price, and I see that we have that much in the bank to cover. . ."
"Well, then go ahead and buy it, but just bid $420,000. Okay?"
"Okay, sweetie. Thanks! I'll see you later!! I love you!!!"
"Bye. I do too."
The man hangs up, closes the phone's flap and raises his hand while holding the phone and asks to all those present, "Does anyone know to whom this phone belongs?"
