A Foolish Purchase

Woman on cellphone, to man: "She says it's seventy-five dollars."

Man: "How much?"

Woman: "Seventy-five. She don't know the value of a dollar."

Man: "Well, how old is it?"

Woman: "She says it's two years old."

Man: "What?!" Seventy-five dollars for a two-year old cat? I thought it was a kitten!" (Grabs cell phone.) "It's two years old? You're stupid. You're stupid. I don't even want to look at it. Go ahead, do whatever you want." (Hangs up.)

Woman: "I told you, she don't know the value of a dollar."
