A wealthy guy was going swimming with his wife.
As they got farther from the shore his wife suddenly slipped and fell in the water.
Unable to save her the man waved his hands desperately hoping that some lifeguard would notice him.
Luckily, there was some lifeguard swimming nearby who was able to help. He caught the drowning lady and saved the guys wife.
After they were safely ashore, the man gratefully thanked the lifeguard and offered to pay him any price.
The lifeguard thought for a moment and said, “how about the amount you would have offered while your wife was still in the water?”
