Shopping in a supermarket
A married couple on a tight budget were shopping in a supermarket. The husband picks up a case of beer and places it in their shopping cart…
The wife complained, “Put that back, we only have enough funds for essential items – not luxuries such as beer costing $20.”
A little later while walking through the cosmetics aisle, the wife picks up a beauty cream and places it in the cart.
The husband says, “I thought we were on a tight budget, buying only essential items, right?”
The wife responds, “This item is essential. It makes me look beautiful!”
“Well,” says the husband,”the beer also makes you look beautiful and its half the price of the cream.”
