The old melon seller

One old man was selling melons on the market. Above the melons he placed a sign – “One melon – $1, three melons – $3.5”. A man came and bought one melon for a dollar. He walked around came back and bought another melon for one dollar and after awhile he bought a third one.

Once he got the third melon he said:

  • You might be old but you are not an experienced seller. I just bought three melons for $3 from you not for $3.5 as you asked.

The old melon seller looked at the man and said:

  • This was exactly my plan. Do you know how many people like you that actually need one melon end up with three melons bought from me?
