After being away on business for a week prior to his wife’s birthday, Tom thought it would be nice to bring her a little gift.
"How about some perfume?" he asked the sales assistant at the cosmetics counter. She showed him a bottle costing $50.
"That's a bit much," said Tom, so she returned with a smaller bottle for $30.
"That's still quite a bit," Tom groused.
Growing disgusted, the sales assistant brought out a tiny $15 bottle.
Tom grew agitated, "What I mean," he said, "is I'd like to see something real cheap."
So the sales assistant handed him a mirror.
