Today I went to the hardware store to buy a Christmas tree. My daughter said "Mom said to get a small one," so we were looking for one the right size. The young man who was in charge came over and said "they're $35 each, and if the one you like is too tall, we'll cut some off the bottom, no problem."

I said "how much is that?" and he said, "well, if we cut some off, we'll charge you less."

This is no joke. The tree we took home was $30.
