a new scam

Today at Romano's in Methuen we were approached by a pregnant woman bearing paper flowers.

I was confused when she gave me two flowers until she said, "$3 for one, or $5 for two." Huh? "It's going to a good cause." [points to her belly] Huh?

Generous guy that I am, I gave her $10 for 4 fake flowers. I hope she spends it wisely. The flowers will look lovely in my car.

Anyway, the consolation is that since the flowers are paper, they won't die...unlike the baby.
