The kind lady who came to my shop

This month we see once again why the Gentle One has so many visitors to her shop.

TODAY in the afternoon, about 4:30, a very kind old woman came into the shop.  After she said “Hi” and “How are you?” I also said, “I’m fine and how are you?”  She said, “I want a large scarf for my daughter-in-law. I want a very beautiful scarf with light colors.”

    I showed her different scarves and she asked about the cost. 
I said that one scarf was 1700 rupees 
($11) and one was 1500 rupees ($9.30) and one was 1600 rupees ($10).  She asked me if I could give her a discount.  I said, “Yes. Why not?”  Then she said she liked the one that was 1700 rupees. I discounted the scarf 200 rupees and sold it for 1500.  She was very happy and bought the scarf and said, “Goodbye”.  

    I said “Goodbye” and asked her to please come again to my shop. She answered she would come again!  —The Gentle One
