It's kinda late for this kind of joke, but I'm still going to go ahead and post it. :)

An apartment owner told me to plant Christmas trees for him in the central plaza.

He told me to plant 7 rows of 6 Christmas trees each, and gave me $4200
dollars to buy the trees, and an extra $500 dollars for my help.

I bought the Christmas trees for $100 each and planted 7 rows of 6 Christmas trees.

I turned a profit of approximately 2500 bucks.

How did I do it?

And one for your own home.
