According to the wise men of old, a happy wife is synonymous with a happy life. This is why many men do as much as they can to make sure that their wives remain satisfied all their lives.

The same rule applied to Tim, who has been married to his wife for more than a decade. As a businessman, Tim often spent time away from his wife on business trips.

During this latest trip, Tim, who had been away for a while thought it would be great if he got his wife a gift. So, when he saw a shop across from the airport, he dashed into it with purpose.

After they exchanged pleasantries, the thoughtful husband asked the cosmetics clerk for a nice bottle of perfume. The clerk reached stepped away from the counter to do as Tim had requested.

When she returned, she handed him the bottle of perfume, which cost $50.00.

Taken aback by the price, Tim said:

"That's a bit much."

So the clerk took the bottle from his hands, went back to the shelf and picked up a smaller container. This smaller bottle was priced at $30.00, which Tim still considered to be expensive.

The clerk went back to the shelf for the third time and got a tiny bottle, which cost $15.00 and took it back to her eager customer.

By this time, Tim was already getting annoyed at the clerk's ineptitude. With his voice riddled with displeasure, the annoyed customer said:

"What I mean is I'd like to see something really cheap."

With a broad yet uneasy smile, the clerk reached across the counter and handed him a mirror. What a burn!

Another joke about gifts tells the story of an angel who appeared in a puff of smoke to a man and said to him,

"Because you have lived a good and virtuous life, I can offer you a gift: you can be the most handsome man in the world, or you can have infinite wisdom, or you can have limitless wealth."

The man reflected on the options and said he'll take the wisdom. The angel then said, "Wisdom is yours," after which he disappears in another puff.

The smoke is barely clear before the man thinks, "I should have taken the money."

What a greedy man!
