There are several men sitting around in the locker room of a
private club after exercising. Suddenly a cell phone on one
of the benches rings. One of the men picks it up, and the
following conversation ensues:

“Hello?”
“Honey, it’s me. Are you at the club?”
“Yes.”
“Great! I am at the mall two blocks from where you are. I
just saw a beautiful mink coat. It’s absolutely gorgeous!!
Can I buy it?”
“What’s the price?”
“Only $1,500.00.”
“Well, OK, go ahead and get it, if you like it that much … ”

“Ahhh, and I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw
the 2001 models. I saw one I really liked. I spoke with the
salesman, and he gave me a really good price … and since we
need to exchange the BMW that we bought last year … ”
“What price did he quote you?”
“Only $60,000 … ”
“OK, but for that price I want it with all the options.”

“Great! But before we hang up, something else … ”
“What?”
“It might look like a lot, but I was reconciling your bank
account and I stopped by the real estate agent this morning
and saw the house we had looked at last year. It’s on sale!!
Remember? The one with a pool, English Garden, acre of park
area, beachfront property … ”
“How much are they asking?”
“Only $450,000 - a magnificent price … and I see that we
have that much in the bank to cover … ”

“Well, then go ahead and buy it, but just bid $420,000. OK?”
“OK, sweetie … Thanks! I’ll see you later!! I love you!!!”
“Bye … I do too … ”

The man hangs up, closes the phone’s flap, and raises his
hand while holding the phone and asks to all those present:
“Does anyone know who this phone belongs to?”
