Chaim Yankel’s Flowers
Chaim Yankel recently opened up a flower shop and he was trying his best to win new customers, although he always seemed to get himself in trouble.
One day an angry man came storming into his store. “What the heck is going on here?” he demanded. “I just lost one of my main clients and it’s your fault!”
“Why don’t you calm down a bit sir” said Chaim Yankel. “Explain to me what exactly happened.”
“Well,” said the man “My biggest client, Abe Cohen, moved to a new location, and to be nice I called you guys up and asked you to send him some flowers with a note saying “congratulations.”
He calls me up and says to me, “What’s the big deal with sending me flowers with a note that says ‘My condolences’?!”
“Are you sure your client's name is Abe Cohen and not Abe Epstein?” asked Chaim Yankel.
“Oh, well I guess now I know why I got that nasty message from the funeral parlor.”
