Advantages and Disadvantages

“I want you to know something,” Chaim Cohen, a New York real estate agent said to some potential clients. “I’ve been studying with my Rabbi and he’s given me some guidelines about what I can and can’t say when I am showing a house. He said that I have to be completely honest so I have to disclose a home’s negatives, but I can also highlight the positives.”

“OK…” said the prospective buyer.

"So in this home”, continued Chaim, “the disadvantages are that there is a chemical plant one block south and a slaughterhouse a block north."

"What are the advantages!?" inquired the prospective buyer.

"The advantage is that you can always tell which way the wind is blowing."
