Tallis Dry Cleaning
Rosh Hashona was over and there was time until Yom Kippur, and Abie
needed his tallis cleaned. He called his friend Max to ask
what dry cleaner to take it to.
Max said, "I always take my tallis to Moishe the dry cleaner on W 4th.
He only charges $4.00" So Abie goes over to Moishe's and finds that the
ownership has changed. He asks the new owner, Mr Jones, if he meets
the old prices. Mr. Jones assures him that he does.
Three days later, Abie goes to get his tallis and is given a bill for
$24.00. He storms at Mr Jones. "I thought you met Moishe's prices?"
"I did, " said Mr Jones, "$4.00 for the tallis, and $20.00 to get all '
the knots out of the fringes!"
