Honesty in Salesmanship

	I'm sure you know the one about the fellow who noticed that his watch had
	stopped, just as he passed by a shop window filled with clocks and watches.
 	So he went inside, introduced himself to the shopkeeper, and asked to have
	his watch repaired.

	"Sorry," said the shopkeeper, "I don't fix watches."

	"Well," said the man, "can you sell me a new one?"

	"Sorry,"said the shopkeeper, "I don't sell watches either."

	"But your window," said the man.  "It's filled with watches.  Why do you
	display watches if you don't sell or fix them?"
	"Listen," said the shopkeeper.  "I'm a mohel.  What would you have me put in
	the window?"
