Story 98 Three Whistles
I promised my girlfriend a gold necklace
for her birthday, but when the jeweler quoted
a price for one we liked, I let out a long, low whistle
"And how much are they then?" I asked, pointing to another tray
"You, sir," replied the jeweler, "about three whistles."
Why did the jeweler say the price of the necklace is about 3 whistles?
A. Because this necklace is cheaper than that one.
B. Because this necklace is three times the price of that one.
C. He was making fun of the young man.
