Long ago, a woman who traveled abroad without her husband got to Paris & found a fabulous bracelet she’d been looking for. So she sent a wire back home saying,
“I have found this beautiful bracelet, one I’ve been looking for all my life. It only costs $7,500. Do you think I can buy it?”
Her husband wired back a short but firm reply, “No, price too high!” And he signed his name.
But in the transmission, the comma was left out & the message read, “No price too high.”
Oh, she was thrilled! Omitting that comma almost put that guy in a coma.
