A Builder's Story......

Fred asked his wife Mary if she would go to B & Q and pick up a hinge.






Mary agreed to go. While she was waiting for the employee to finish serving a customer, her eye caught a beautiful bathroom tap set.





When the employee was finished, Mary asked him, "How much is that tap set?"







The employee replied, "That's a gold plated tap set and the price is £4999.00

Mary exclaimed, "My goodness, that is a very expensive tap set. It's certainly out of my price bracket."

She then proceeded to describe the hinge that Fred had sent her to buy.

The employee said that he had them in stock and went into the storeroom to get one.

From the storeroom the employee yelled. "Madam, do you wanna screw for the hinge?"

Mary paused for a moment and then shouted back,

"No, but I will for the tap set."

This is why you can't send a woman to B & Q
