Or when I was a kid watching the carpenters building "Victory Homes" and a
carpenter sent me down to another house to get a round square! I was so
naive!! Funny looking back at it!

The expression popular with me is "For that price it better have lips!"
I used that line once over the phone when quoted a high price for a bike
fork rebuild kit. The kid on the other end of the phone said"Just a minu=
I'll check with the owner." Major laugh from the owner in the background.
He and I are old friends and still laugh about the kid's naivet=E9.
