Better to think ahead

A man lost in the desert, desperate for water, was trudging along when he saw something far off in the distance. Hoping to find water, he hurried towards it, only to find a little old man at a small stand selling ties.

The lost man asked, "Do you have water?"

The stall man replied, "I have no water. Would you like to buy a tie? They are only $5."

The lst man shouted, I do not need an over-priced tie! I need water! I should kill you, but I must find water first!"

"OK, OK" said the old man, "It does not matter that you do not want to buy a tie and that you hate me. I will show you that I am bigger than that. If you continue over that hill to the east for about two miles, you will find a lovely restaurant. It has all the ice cold water you need."

Muttering, the man staggered away over the hill. Several hours later he staggered back, almost dead.

"Your brother won't let me in without a tie!"
