How much?

Several men are in the changing room of a golf club. A mobile phone on a bench rings and a man engages the hands free speaker function and begins to talk. Everyone else in the room stops to listen.
"Hello?"

"Darling, it's me. Are you at the club?"

"Yes."

"I'm at the shopping center and found this beautiful leather coat. It's only $1,000. Is it okay if I buy it?"

"Sure ... go ahead if you like it that much."

"I also stopped by the Saab dealership and saw the new 2007 models. I saw one I really liked."

"How much?"

"$50,000"

"Okay. But for that price it had better be an Aero. And be sure to get the previous owner discount."

"Great! Oh, and one more thing ... . The house I wanted last year is back on the market. They're asking $650,000."

"Well, then go ahead and give them an offer of $600,000. They'll probably take it. If not, we can go the extra fifty thousand. It really is a pretty good price."

"Okay. I'll see you later! I love you so much!"

"Bye! I love you, too."
The man hangs up. The other men in the changing room are staring at him in astonishment, mouths agape. He smiles and asks, "Anyone know who this phone belongs to?"
