An old lady was selling flowers under a flight of stairs. She had one more left to sell. Because we were kids, and the world was simple, all we wanted was for her to succeed so she could go home and rest. We knew no embarrassment or proper social conduct so we approached a couple that was nearby, and convinced them to buy that last flower. They did and we were very satisfied with the outcome.

Until we saw the lady taking out a hundred more flowers from underneath the stairs.
