Oh Well


At one time I used to have a stand at  Boat Shows selling marine art. It was okay and we did reasonably well but now we restrict what we do. Anyway the stallholders ranged from people selling sailing books, and accessories to expensive motor yachts.
One day a man came to our stall. He had a good look at the paintings and chose one.  Alex saw he had an exhibitors badge took his money and gave him back ten percent saying, "As your an exhibitor we'll give you a bit of discount." He gave a wry smile but was very polite.
When he had gone I explained to her he had just sold two large motor yachts worth over a million pounds and he had come to buy a painting to celebrate.

Link Oh well
