(A customer is at our electronics store looking at the Macs.)

Customer: “Is this that Windows Vi-ah-ster?”

Me: “You mean Windows Vista? No, these are Macs, sir.”

Customer: “Right, Windows Vista, exactly.”

Me: “Are you going to buy one?”

Customer: “Yeah, got anything that’s under $200?”

Me: “Not in the Apple section, and I really wouldn’t advise you get a $200 Vista rig anyway. It will run slowly.”

(He goes over, finds a low end rig, and gets it anyway. He’s back a day later.)

Customer: “Ya, its not workin’.”

Me: “I told you, why didn’t you listen?”

Customer: “Oh, I saw two comp-ooh-ters at that price, and the other one looked better.”

Me: “Looked better… how?”

Customer: “The paint was shinier.”
