The gift-giver

The gift-giver

On Christmas Eve, Nathan thought it would be nice to buy his wife a little gift for the next day. Always tight with money, he thought long and hard about what that present might be.

Unable to decide, he entered a department store and in the cosmetics section he asked the girl, “How about some perfume?”

She showed him a bottle costing $150.

“Too expensive!” exclaimed Nathan.

The young lady returned with a smaller bottle for $75.

“Oh dear,” Nathan groused, “still far too much.”

Growing rather annoyed at Nathan's stinginess, the sales girl brought out a tiny $20 bottle and showed it to him. Nathan became really agitated.

“What I mean”, he whined, “is I'd like to see something really cheap.”

So the sales girl handed him a mirror.
