The clerk said, "You mean planks, don't you?"
Buddy said, "I'll go check," and went back to the truck. He returned a minute later and said, "Yeah, I meant planks."
"Alright. How long do you need them?"
The customer paused for a minute and said, "I'd better go check."
After awhile, Buddy returned to the office and said, "For a long time. We're gonna build a house."
