Deal of the Day!

Yesterday I got to go to visit a few "flea market" tents. I am a huge fan of freezer baskets so when I spotted one on the grass, all alone, I set out to find the owner. What I found was the rear end and legs of a man putting things into a pick up bed. I didn't want him to hit his head on the topper, so I waited until he crawled out and sat on his tailgate, He had to be about 80+ years old! Here was our conversation.

Me: Does this freezer basket belong to you?
Man: Yep.
Me: How much do you want for it?
Man: $3.
Me: Perfect!
Man: You can have me for $2.
Me: Really? Wow! That sounds like quite a deal! If I give you this $5, you wouldn't even have to give me change.
Man: Course, I don't know what you'd do with me.
Me: I'm sure I could come up with something (chuckle, chuckle).
Man from neighboring booth: Don't be doin' that now! You know you gotta go home to the missus!
Man: Dad-gum-it, he's right. Forgot about goin' home to the missus.
Me: Okay, well, if you're sure..........................Have a good day!
