I pulled open the door and walked into the computer store, there was a line so I waited behind two guys in front of me while they talked to the sales dude behind the counter. The two guys were clearly looking for a new computer, all the classic signs were there; one hand was clutching a ton of brochures, while the other hand massaged a growing headache. The conversation went like this…
Guy #1: “Does it come with speakers?”
Sales Dude: “Yes it does.”
Guy #2: “Can I run it through my stereo?”
Sales Dude: “Yes you can.”
Guy #1: “I heard it can mess up the stereo if you do that…”
Sales Dude, trying his best not to laugh: “Umm, no.”
The guys look at each other, nodding in acceptance of the information they just received. “Ok, we’ll think about it and get back to you” they say, to which the sales dude replies “Cool”. They were just about to leave the store to contemplate speaker options when one of the shiny skyhawk cases caught guy #2’s eye.
Guy #2: “Whoa. Check that out! It has a window and lights!”
Guy #1, in a trance from the lights: “Oooooooo.”
Guy #2: “Does it come with that?”
Sales Dude: “No it doesn’t, you’ll have to pay more for that case.”
When they finally leave, I walk up to the counter smile, laugh and exchange ‘they have no bloody idea’ look with the sales dude.
