The phone rings and John picks it up

"Honey, it's me. Are you at the club?"


"Great! I am at the mall two blocks from where you are. I just saw a
beautiful mink coat. It's absolutely gorgeous!! Can I buy it?"

"What's the price?"

"Only $2,500.00."

"Well, OK, go ahead and get it, if you like it that much..."

"Ahhh, and I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the new 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

"What price did he quote you?"
"Only $60,000..."

"OK, but for that price I want it with all the options."
"Great! But before we hang up, something else..."


"It might look like a lot, but I was reconciling your bank account and...I
stopped by the real estate agent this morning and 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 $950,000 - 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 $920,000. OK?"

"OK, 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 who this phone
belongs to?"


Take care,
