Charlie was installing a new door and he found that one of the hinges was missing.

He asked his wife Mary if she would go to the hardware store and pick one up. He wrote down what was required.

Mary agreed to go. While she was waiting for the attendant to finish serving a customer, her eye caught a beautiful bathroom tap.

When he was finished, Mary asked him, “How much is that bath tap?”

He replied, “That’s a gold plated bath tap Madam and the price is $5,000”

Mary exclaimed, “My goodness, that is very expensive and it’s certainly out of my price range”

She handed the attendant the description of the hinge Charlie had sent her to buy. Yes, said the attendant, they had them in stock and he went into the storeroom to get one.

From the storeroom he yelled, “Madam, do you wanna screw for the hinge?”

Mary paused for a moment and then shouted back, “No, but I will for the bath tap.”
