So I was helping to close a deal on a pretty nice mattress set tonight. The guy was trying to "pull my chain". Yeah, I was some kind of innocent.

Anyway - he's going on and on, using every excuse, line, pile of BS I've ever heard.

All of a sudden I grimace, grab my hip and say "Ow".

He stops talking (thank goodness) and says "You alright?"

I say: "Yeah, I must have really hurt my hip when I fell off that turnip truck last night."

Yeah - we closed the deal, he paid full pop and didn't give us any more trouble.

Heh! Sometimes it pays to be quick witted!
