The Best-Laid Plans of Mice and Salarymen

Sold a yellow gold 25.00 TCW CZ tennis bracelet. Customer’s plan was to replace the fake stones with real diamonds after he got his Christmas bonus. He said, ‘So do not tell my wife they’re not real diamonds!’ Well, he never got his bonus. The fake diamonds kept falling out of the mounting and my customer’s wife got mad at me. — Barry Fixler, Barry’s Estate Jewelry, Bardonia, NY
