Keep the Change

Selling secondhand books (旧书,二手书)at our church bazaar, I got into an argument with a prospecitive customer(潜在顾客). He was interested in buying The Pocket Book of Ogden Nash but claimed it was overpriced(开价过高) at 25 cents. Other paperbacks were selling for 10 or 15 cents each.
I pointed out that the book was in good condition(保存状况很好). Nash was a fun poet and it was for a good cause(是合理的。). He said it was a matter of principle(这是个原则问题). Ultimately(最后), I agreed to sell him the book for 15 cents.Triumphantly(得意扬扬地), he paid with a $10 bill.“Keep the change. ”he said.
