A15. A Classy Way to Reply

I’ve been receiving a particular joke in various forms for years now. It’s showcased like a real incident but how real it is happens to be an unsolved mystery. Or maybe, it’s a solved mystery but I’m unaware of its solution. Every time I receive the joke, the names of the characters of this joke are either anonymous or they’re the names of popular business figures like Vijay Mallya. Here’s the joke:

A man was smoking a cigarette outside an airport.

A woman asked him, “How many cigarettes do you smoke in a day?”

The man replied, “Over 20-30 cigarettes a day. Why?”

The woman said, “Do you see the luxury car parked there? If you would’ve saved all the money that you’ve been spending on cigarettes for years, you would own that car today.”

The man asked her, “Do you own it?”

The woman said, “No”. The Man said, “Then shut up because I own it.”

Sometimes, the luxury car in the joke is replaced with an airplane. Often, the joke comes with a message that says that the moral of this joke is that one should not given an advice when he/she is not asked to give one.

I believe that the smoker could reply in a classier way. How? Instead of asking the woman to shut up, he could’ve thanked her for her advice and then, instead of telling her that he owns it, he should have walked up to his car and he should’ve gotten onto the driver’s seat if he was going to drive it or onto the back seat if his driver or somebody else was going to drive the car. Why? Well, actions speak louder than words, don’t they?
