Is He Clever ?

Ben owns a grocery store.
He put up a sign on the window.
Tomatoes, 25 cents a piece or
three for a dollar.
The first customer walked in and complained.
"That's not fair," the young lady said.
"I should get four tomatoes for a dollar."
Ben apologized and provided the customer,
four tomatoes for a dollar.
The second customer walked in and
made a big fuss about the sign.
"That sign can't be right," he said.
"It should be four tomatoes instead of three."
Ben agreed with the old man and
sold him four tomatoes for a dollar.
Ben's friend, Charlie stood near by
and watched the whole episode.
Charlie pulled Ben aside.
"Aren't you forgetting something?" Charlie asked.
"You should correct the mistake on the sign."
"What mistake?" Ben bellowed.
"Before the sign was up." Ben said. 
"Customers only bought one tomato."
