A sixteen year-old boy came home with a new Chevrolet Avalanche and his parents began to yell and scream, `Where did you get that truck???!!!`
He calmly told them, `I bought it today.`
`With what money?` demanded his parents. They knew what a Chevrolet Avalanche cost.
`Well,` said the boy, `this one cost me just fifteen dollars.`
So the parents began to yell even louder. `Who would sell a truck like that for fifteen dollars?` they said.
`It was the lady up the street,` said the boy. I don`t know her name – they just moved in. She saw me ride past on my bike and asked me if I wanted to buy a Chevrolet Avalanche and I asked her `At what price?` and she said `whatever you`ve got` and I had 15 dollars, so she let me have the truck for 15 Dollars!`
`Oh my Goodness!,` moaned the mother, `she must be a child abuser. Who knows what she will do next? John, you go right up there and see what`s going on.`
So the boy`s father walked up the street to the house where the lady lived and found her out in the yard calmly planting petunias! He introduced himself as the father of the boy to whom she had sold a new Chevrolet Avalanche for fifteen dollars and demanded to know why she did it.
`My husband told me that he was going on a business trip, but a friend of mine informed me that he was seen in Hawaii with a young and good looking girl and is not likely to come back.`
`Well,` she continued, `this morning I got a phone call from my husband and he said he was stranded and needed cash immediately. He asked me to sell his new Chevrolet Avalanche and send him the money.
