Broken Vase

A tightwad was looking for a gift for a friend of his. Everything he saw in the store was too expensive. Then he came across a glass vase that had been broken, which could be purchased for next to nothing.

The tightwad asked the store clerk to send the gift, hoping his friend would think that the vase had been broken during transit.

A couple of weeks later, the tightwad received an acknowledgment for the gift. "Thanks for the vase," read the card. "It was so thoughtful of you to wrap each piece separately."
