Oops! You are not the salesman!

Super Market, a wife busy buying groceries. Looks around for tea leaves but cannot spot. Turns around and looks at a man standing few steps apart and blurts -“Bhaiya, tea leaves kahan hain? (Where are the tea leaves kept?)”  The man stares and says “I don’t know and disappears in a jiffy!”
