Earl was fixing a door and he found that he needed a new hinge, so he sent
his wife Mary to the hardware store.
At the hardware store, Mary saw a beautiful teapot on a top shelf while
she was waiting for Carl, the manager, to finish waiting on a customer.
When Carl was finished, Mary asked "How much for the teapot?"
Carl replied, "That's silver and it costs $300."
"My goodness that sure is a lot of money!" Mary exclaimed. Then she
proceeded to describe the hinge that Earl had sent her to buy, and Carl
went to the back room to find it.
From the back room Carl yelled, "Mary, you wanna screw for that hinge?"
Mary replied, "No, but I will for the teapot."
This is why you can't send a woman to a hardware store.
