A traveling salesman was greeted at the door by one of the sweetest little old ladies he'd met in ages. After chatting a moment, she invited him in to rest a spell and offered to bring him something cold to drink.
After accepting her kind offer, he sat down on the couch to await her return from the kitchen. On the table he noticed a bowl of mixed nuts. Suddenly realizing how hungry he was, he decided that the woman wouldn't mind if he helped himself. He'd already finished one handful and was reaching for more when the sweet granny returned with some fresh-squeezed lemonade.
"I hope you don't mind that I helped myself to your nuts, ma'am," he said.
To which she replied, "Oh heavens no, dear. I don't mind a bit. I always hate to see them go to waste after I've sucked all the chocolate off ."
