All Ceiling Fails Are Final

, | Working | October 12, 2012

(I visit a lighting store because I need a chain from which to hang a heavy stained glass lamp.)

Me: “Hi, I’ve got a really heavy stained glass lamp to hang from the ceiling. It’s probably about 20 pounds and I’m looking for some chain.”

Worker: *holds up some chain* “What about this?”

Me: “Is that going to be strong enough to support it?”

Worker: “Well, if it isn’t, bring it back and we’ll give you a refund.”
