You see there was this jogger. He was regular in his exercise and
Every morning heâ€™d follow the same route, passing the same bagel
cart. And each day heâ€™d toss 60 cents onto the counter of the
bagel cart as he passed.
And, no, this does not define a yuppy jog-by coiningâ€¦
One day he was hewing to his usual habit when he noticed that
the guy at the bagel cart had taken after him and was calling
for him to stop.
He stopped, waited for the bagel guy to catch up, and then said,
â€œI know, I know, you want to know why I drop 60 cents on your
counter each day, right?â€
â€œNo, thatâ€™s not it,â€ replied the bagel cart guy, â€œI just thought
you should know that bagels are now 75 cents each.â€
