A quick story I found rather humorous, and no, it is not about the Pope.
My wife, who is severely disabled due to a brain tumor, watches a lot of religious programs on TV. She and I were watching the televangelist, Jesse Duplantis, one afternoon, who is about as much a comedian as he is a preacher... but he told this story as a true story.
Jesse Duplantis, being a former musician and rock-n-roll singer, before he started preaching, said he wanted to buy him a nice piano. So, he goes to the swankiest, fanciest piano store near him to shop for a piano. He said he found the one he liked and wanted, though he didn't mention the brand name... I figure it had to be a Steinway or a Bosendorfer or the like.
For those who have never heard of Jesse Duplantis, he is a multi-mega millionaire televangelist who owns his own private Learjet; anyway, Jesse said the salesman in the store more or less just ignored him and never offered to help him. So, Jesse calls the salesman over to the piano and says, "I'd like to buy this piano". The salesman says, "mister, you don't have enough money to buy that piano", and he wasn't smiling when he said it.
Jesse Duplantis, a bit shocked at the salesman's response, repeats himself, "I want to buy this piano", and begins to pull out his checkbook. When the salesman finally realizes that Jesse is serious, he (the salesman) is the one who is stunned and shocked.
Moral of the story.... maybe piano salespeople need to watch TBN more often.
By-the-way, this post is not a religious solicitation, just a recommendation/suggestion that piano salespeople should give their customers the benefit of the doubt that they (the customer) have the money to buy the piano.
