The Birthday Gift

A woman goes into a shop to buy a rod and reel as a birthday gift.

She doesn’t know which to get so she just grabs one and goes over to the counter where there’s a shop assistant wearing dark shades. “Excuse me sir,” she says, “Can you tell me anything about this rod and reel?”

The assistant replies, “Ma’am, I’m blind but if you drop it on the counter I can tell you everything you need to know about it from the sound it makes.”

She didn’t believe him, but dropped it on the counter anyway.

He said, “That a 6′ graphite rod with a Zebco 202 reel and 10 lb. test line… It’s a good all around rod and reel and it’s only $20.00.”

The lady said, “It’s amazing that you can tell all that by just the sound of it dropping on the counter. I think it’s what I’m looking for so I’ll take it.”

He walks behind the counter to the register, and in the meantime the woman breaks wind big-time. At first she is embarrassed but then realizes that there is no way he could tell it was her… being blind he wouldn’t know that she was the only person around.

The assistant rings up the sale and says, “That’ll be $25.50.”

She says, “But didn’t you say it was $20.00?”

“Yes ma’am, the rod and reel is $20.00, but the duck call is $3.00 and the catfish stink bait is $2.50.”
