Repaired a thrown-away smartphone, and floated an advert for it on the local board at a low price. Someone called and came to collect it. They were chatty until:

Customer: “You should give it to me for free.” (Doing the jedi hand wave)
Me: “What? Why?”
Customer: “Because you want to give it to me for free.” (Repeating)
Me, catching on: “Mind tricks do not work on me. Only money.”
Customer: “What? Damnit! But I don’t have the money!”
Me: “Then you can’t have the phone. Good bye.”
Customer, leaving: “But it worked on Star Wars!”
