I recently had to go and do some emergency white goods/appliance shopping at a local out of town retail park. I was in one of the big electrical/computer/domestic appliance stores, waiting (what a surprise) to be served at the laughingly entitled Customer Service desk. This was quite near to the display of laptops that they had for sale, and as I am always interested in seeing what is on offer, I was perusing the display nearest to me. There was a family group there too, also looking at laptops. I have long ago stopped giving people advice in shops about what not to buy, but I was interested to listen to part of their selection process. Without a word of a lie, this is, verbatim, what they said:
“Let’s get this one – the laptop bag is better than that one”!
This caused my radar to start tingling, but the next comment kind of took away any further action or comment that I might have been capable of:
“How long is the memory in this one?”
