After a weekend round of golf at the club, three old friends went to the
locker room to freshen up before dinner. Jim and Bob had always kidded
Bill about being cheap, which led to their surprise at what happened next:
A cell phone rings on a bench when Bill, fresh out of the shower, engages
the hands-free speaker-function and begins to talk. Jim and Bob continued
changing their clothes and drying themselves, but the conversation dies to
a whisper as they listen in.
WOMAN: "Honey, it's me. Are you at the club?"
WOMAN: "I am at the mall now and found this beautiful mink coat. It's only
$8,000. Is it OK if I buy it?"
BILL: "Sure, go ahead if you like it that much."
WOMAN: "I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the new 2004
models. I saw one I really liked."
BILL: "How much?"
BILL: "OK, but for that price I want it with all the options."
WOMAN: "OK. I'll see you later! I love you!"
BILL: "Bye, I love you too."
Bill hangs up. The other men in the locker room are looking at him in
astonishment. Then he asks: "Anyone know who this phone belongs to?"
