I think this thread has been made in fun, i.e. not to be taken seriously.

I took it as being offered as being tongue-in-cheek and replied in that manner. I think the OP intended it as being in jest.

I heard this story a long time ago and it has stuck with me.

Someone gave a well to do woman a gift of a huge silver platter with her initials engraved in it. The woman was flattered to receive such an extravagant gift. But the platter was completely out of synch with the rest of her decor and she could imagine no use for it whatsoever.

After several months, an occasion arose where she needed a gift for someone. She thought silver platter would be perfect and would raise the recipient's feeling towards her. However, the monogram was a problem.

She took the platter to her favorite jeweler and asked if he could remove the monogram and replace it with another. He examined the platter with great care and even employed his jeweler's loop. After much inspection and thought the jeweler told the woman, "Yes, I can do as you ask but this will have to be the last time.
