She doesn’t know which one to get, so she just grabs one off the shelf, and wanders on over to the register.
There is a Wal-Mart “associate” standing there with dark shades on.
She says, “Excuse me sir, can you tell me anything about this here fishing pole?”
He says, “Ma’am I’m blind, but if you will drop it on the counter I can tell you everything you need to know about it from the sound that it makes.”
She didn’t believe him, but dropped it on the counter anyway.
Then he said, “Well that there’s a 5 foot graphite composite rod. It has a Maxor 202 reel with 12 lb. test line. It’s a good all around rod and reel and it’s yours for just $20 bucks.”
“That’s amazing that you can tell all that just by the sound of it dropping on the counter. Sounds like what I’m looking for, so I’ll take it,” she says.
He walks behind the counter to the register, and in the meantime the woman farts rather loudly.
She is embarrassed at first, but then realized that there is no way in the world he could tell it was her, as being blind, he wouldn’t know that she was the only person around.
He rings up the sale and says, “Well ma’am, That’ll be $25.50.”
She says, “But you said it was 20 bucks?”
He says, “Yes ma’am, that there rod and reel is 20 bucks, sure ’nuff, and the duck call is $3.00, and the catfish stink bait is on special offer today, just $2.50!”
