An Arab was walking through the Sahara desert, desperate for water, when he saw something far off in the distance. Hoping to find water, he walked towards the image, only to find a little old Jewish man sitting at a card table with a bunch of neckties laid out on it. The Arab asked Please, Im dying of thirst, can I have some water?
The man replied I dont have any water, but why dont you buy a tie? Heres one that goes nicely with your robes.
The Arab shouted, I dont want a tie, you idiot, I need water!
OK, dont buy a tie. But to show you what a nice guy I am, Ill tell you that over that hill there, about 4 miles, is a nice restaurant. Walk that way, theyll give you all the water you want.
The Arab thanked him and walked away towards the hill and eventually disappeared. Three hours later the Arab came crawling back to where the man was sitting behind his card table. He said I told you, about 4 miles over that hill. Couldnt you find it?
The Arab rasped I found it all right. They wouldnt let me in without a tie.
