There are several men sitting around in the locker room of a golf club after a round, showering and getting ready for the 19th hole. Suddenly, a mobile phone on one of the benches rings. One of the men picks it up and the following conversation ensues:
WIFE: "Honey, it's me. Are you at the club?"
WIFE: "Great! I am at the mall two blocks from where you are. I just saw a beautiful leather coat. It's absolutely gorgeous! Can I buy it?"
HUSBAND: "What's the price?"
WIFE: "Only $1,000."
HUSBAND: "Well, okay, go ahead and get it if you like it that much."
WIFE: "Ahh, and I also stopped by a Mercedes dealership and saw the 2002 models. I saw one I really liked. I spoke with the salesman and he gave me a really good price... and since we need to exchange the BMW that we bought last year..."
HUSBAND: "What price did he quote you?"
WIFE: "Only $60,000."
HUSBAND: "Okay, but for $60,000, I want it with all the options."
WIFE: "Great! But before we hang up, something else..."
WIFE: "It might look like a lot, but I was reconciling your bank account and I stopped by the real estate agent this morning and I saw the house we had looked at last year. It's for sale! Remember the one with a pool, English garden, acre of park area, and beachfront property?"
HUSBAND: "How much are they asking?"
WIFE: "Only $450,000, a magnificent price! and I see that we have that much in the bank to cover."
HUSBAND: "Well, then go ahead and buy it, just bid up to $450,000. Okay?"
WIFE: "Okay sweetie, thanks! I'll see you later! I love you."
HUSBAND: "Bye, I love you too."
The man hangs up and closes the phone's flap. The other men are looking at him in astonishment. The husband raises his hand while holding the phone and asks, "Does anyone know who this phone belongs to?"
