Friends, we've got a lot of work to do

A friend of my husband's swears this is true:

He reports:

Last month, as I was shopping [in New York] for a gift for my wife, a young woman standing next to me asked the clerk if she could look at the crosses. The kindly clerk asked: "Which cross interests you?" To my chagrin and the clerk’s surprise, the young woman said: "The one with the little man on it." I asked her: "Do you know who that little man is ???" "No," she replied, "but the little man gives the cross a certain flair."
