An old man was standing on a crowded bus. A young man standing next to him asked, "What time is it?" The old man said nothing.

As the young man walked away, the old man's friend asked, "Why were you so rude to the young man?"

The old man answered, "If I had given him the time of day, he’d want to know where I am going. Then we might talk about our interests. If we did that he might invite himself to my house for dinner. If he came to my house, he would meet my lovely daughter. If he met her, they would both fall in love and frankly, I don’t want my daughter marrying someone who can’t afford a watch."
