A man is at Grand Central Station waiting for his train which leaves at 6:00 PM but he has forgotten his watch. So he looks for someone to ask the time. He spots this guy walking past carrying 2 suitcases and sporting this fabulous hi-tech watch, so he asks him for the time.
The guy replies “Sure, which country?”
The fella asks “How many countries have you got?”, to which the reply is “All the countries in the world!”
“Wow! That’s a pretty cool watch you’ve got there.”
“That’s nothing. This watch also has a GPS facility, fax, e-mail and can even receive NTSC television channels and display them on its miniature active color pixel LCD screen!”
“Boy, that’s incredible. I wish I had a watch like that one… You wouldn’t consider selling it by any chance?”
“Well, actually the novelty has worn off for me, so for $900, if you want it, it’s yours.”
The watchless traveller can hardly whip out his check book fast enough, and hands over a check for $900.
The seller takes off the watch and gives it to him. “Congratulations, here is your new hi-tech watch” and then, handing the 2 suitcases over as well he says, “and here are the batteries.”
