A fellow went on a business trip with his boss, the cheapest man alive. One night the boss was late getting back to the hotel. He said he’d met a young lady, they’d gone out and then he dropped her at her hotel. “Was she pretty?” the fellow asked.
“Was she?” the boss replied. “The entire cab ride to her hotel I could hardly keep my eyes on the meter.”
