Don’t Mess with a New York Woman
Two brawny men came to a Ethel Cohen’s house in Brooklyn to install some new floor covering in the kitchen. Once they had moved the stove and refrigerator out of the way, it was not long before the job was done.
As they were getting ready to leave, Ethel asked them to put the heavy appliances back in place.
The two men demanded $45 for this service, stating it was not in their contract.
Ethel really had no choice but to pay them. As soon as they left, however, the doorbell rang. It was the two men. They asked Ethel to move her car, which was blocking their van.
She told them her fee: $45.
