A farmer went to buy a pickup truck that he saw advertised for a certain price. After telling the salesman which truck he wanted, they sat down to do the paperwork. Finally the salesman handed the farmer the bill, "Wait a minute," the farmer exclaimed," This isn't the price I saw in the paper!" "Well," replied the salesman, "there are a few extras such as power brakes, power windows, special tires etc. that is why the price is higher." The farmer needed the truck badly, so he paid the price and went home.
A few months later, the salesman called up the farmer and said, "My son is in 4-H and he needs a cow for a project. Do you have any for sale?" "Yes, I have a few cows, and I will sell them for $500.00 apiece. Come and look at them and take your pick." Answered the Farmer. The salesman said he and his son would be right out.
After spending a few hours in the field checking out all the farmer's cows, the two decided on one and the salesman proceeded to write out a check for $500.00. Now, wait a minute, said the farmer, "that's not the final price of the cow. You're getting extras with it and you have to pay for that too." "What extras?" asked the salesman.
