Honesty in Salesmanship

I'm sure you know the one about the fellow who noticed that his watch had stopped, just as he passed by a shop window filled with clocks and watches. So he went inside, introduced himself to the shopkeeper, and asked to have his watch repaired.

"Sorry," said the shopkeeper, "I don't fix watches."

"Well," said the man, "can you sell me a new one?"

"Sorry,"said the shopkeeper, "I don't sell watches either."

"But your window," said the man. "It's filled with watches. Why do you display watches if you don't sell or fix them?"

"Listen," said the shopkeeper. "I'm a mohel. What would you have me put in the window?"
