"You'll know tonight." he said.

A blind man with a seeing-eye dog at his side walks into a grocery store.

The store manager, who has seen all this, thinks this is quite strange.

So, he decides to find out what's going on.

The store manager approaches the blind man swinging the dog and says, "Pardon me. May I help you with something."

The blind man says, "No thanks. I'm just looking around."
