Silver Teapot Favours

188

Bob was fixing the kitchen door when he found that he needed a new hinge, so he asked his wife Mary to pop into B&Q to get a hinge for him. As she couldn’t find the exact style, Mary asked the assistant for some help and while waiting for the assistant Carl to finish with another customer, she spotted a beautiful teapot on a top shelf. When Carl was finished, Mary asked “How much for the teapot?” Carl replied, “That’s silver and it costs £300.00.” “My goodness, that sure is a lot of money!” Mary exclaimed. Then she proceeded to describe the hinge that Bob had sent her to buy, then Carl went to the back of the shop to find it. From the back Carl yelled, “Would you like a screw for that hinge?” Mary replied, “No, but I would for the teapot.”
