Henry Ford always bought flowers for his wife from a shop every Friday evening. Once, he asked the old florist, "Gentlemen, you have a good shop. Why not open a branch?" Florist, "Sir, then what?" Henry Ford, "You will then have several branches in Detroit". Florist, "Sir, then what?" Henry Ford, angrily, "Damn it, you will then be able to relax". Florist, "That is what I am doing even now". Ford walked away sheepishly.
