GIVING THEM TIME
Angry Purchaser Didn't you tell
me that you had got as many as
twelve eggs in one day from those
eight hens you sold me?
Poultry Raiser Yes, ma'am.
Angry Purchaser Then why is it
that I'm never able to get more than
two eggs from them, and sometimes
not so many in one day?
Poultry Raiser I don't know;
ma'am, unless it's because you look
for eggs too often. Now, if you look
for them only once a week, I feel'
quite positive that you will get just as
many eggs in one day as I did. Top-Notch.
