A woman is having lunch in a Los Angeles cafe when a man approaches her table. “Excuse me, miss,” the man says, “my wife and I are visiting from out of town. She loves your sandals. She wanted me to come over and ask if you bought those sandals around here.”

“Actually,” the woman responds, “I got them in a shop just about a block from here.”

“Fantastic,” the man responds, “and if I may ask, how much did you pay for them?”

“I paid $250,” she admits.

“Thank you,” the man responds. He walks away and yells to his wife, “She got them in New York!”
