31 Oct Mini-barn flying circus
A disgruntled shopper of our acquaintance recounts his efforts to buy a shed. A shed he could see, but could not buy.
Me: I’d like to buy the pre-assembled shed advertised outside your store for $600.
Kent guy: We don’t have any.
Me: But I see one outside you store.
Kent guy: That’s the display model.
Me: So the display model is not for sale?
Kent guy: No. It’s the display model.
Me: So the display model is advertising an item you don’t have for sale?
Kent guy: I could order one in for you.
Kent guy: It wouldn’t be assembled, though.
Me: OK, so I would have to put it together.
Kent guy: It wouldn’t be at the sale price. It would be the regular price: $1,039.
Me: I see. So, your assembled sheds cost $400 less than the ones your customers have to put together.
Kent guy: Well the sale price is only for the pre-assembled one.
Me: Yes, and you don’t have any of those.
Kent guy: Except for the display model.
Me: Which isn’t for sale.
Kent guy: That’s right.
Me: It’s not much of a cheese shop, is it?
Shut your festering gob, you tit!
