Zebco 404 comboA farmer sent his wife to town to the tractor dealership for a new hydraulic hose, and asked her to also stop by Walmart to buy a rod and reel for their grandson’s birthday. Once in the store she realizes she really doesn’t know which one to get, so she just grabs a rod and reel set and goes over to the counter. The clerk was standing behind the counter wearing dark shades.  She says to him, “Excuse me, sir. Can you tell me anything about this rod and reel?”

He says, “Ma’am, I’m completely blind; but if you’ll drop it on the counter, I can tell you everything from the sound it makes.” She doesn’t believe him but drops it on the counter anyway.  He says, “That’s a  Zebco 404 Spincast combo rod and reel with 10 pound test line. It’s a good all-around combination, and it’s on sale this week for only $20.00.”

She says, “It’s amazing that you can tell all that just by the sound of it dropping on the counter. I’ll take it!” As she opens her purse, her credit card drops on the floor. “Oh, that sounds like a Master Card,” he says. She bends down to pick it up and accidentally farts. At first she is really embarrassed, but then realizes, there is no way the blind clerk could tell it was her who tooted. Being blind, he wouldn’t know that she was the only person around?

The man rings up the sale and says, “That’ll be $34.50 please.” The woman is totally confused by this and asks, “Didn’t you tell me the rod and reel were on sale for $20.00? How did you get $34.50?” He replies, “Yes, ma’am. The rod and reel are $20.00, but the Duck Call is $11.00, and the Catfish Stink Bait is $3.50.”

Stunned, she paid the $34.50 and left without saying a word.
