Good Trade

A traveling saleswoman is driving toward home in Arizona when she sees an Indian woman hitchhiking. She stops the car and the Indian woman gets in. After a bit of small talk, the Indian woman notices a brown bag on the front seat.

What's in the bag?, she asks.

It's a bottle of wine. I got it for my husband.

The Indian woman is silent for a while, then nods and says, you made a good trade.
