    To Have And To Hold On To The Recliner

    | Milford, CT, USA |

    (I am about to sell a couple of recliners to a wife and her husband.)

    Me: “Alright, folks. I can go ring up those two recliners for you.”

    Wife: “Will they take our old recliner with them when they deliver the new one?”

    Me: “Well, they can move it to another room or bring it out to the curb free of charge. But if you want them to actually bring it with them, it’s a $50 charge. They have to make a separate trip to donate or dispose of it.”

    Husband: “$50? That’s ridiculous!”

    Wife: “Are you kidding? We don’t know anybody who will do it for us. If we hire someone, we’re never going to find someone to do it for less than $50.”

    Husband: “It’s $50!”

    Wife: “Did you not hear what I just said?”

    Husband: “Yeah, but I’m not paying $50 for them to take away our old chair.”

    Wife, to me: “Can you please excuse us for two minutes so we can have an argument?”

    (I walk away while they continue to fight. Sure enough, two minutes later, the wife calls me back over.)

    Wife: “Okay, we’re done arguing. We’ll pay the $50 for the haul away.”

    (The husband looks down at the floor and says nothing.)
