Cheap Computers Are Not Enough Of A Steal

, , , , , | Right | March 9, 2010

Customer: “I need to get a seven-inch screen computer that will fit on my lap when I use it. Please, sell me one now!”

Me: “I’d be happy to help you find a laptop.”

Customer: “Well, first off, I don’t want a laptop. I want a computer with a seven-inch screen that can sit on my lap while I’m using it.”

Me: “Okay, follow me, sir.”

(I find him his computer. A few hours pass and the customer leaves holding a small box in his arms. The alarm sounds as he leaves the building. I rush up and bring him back inside.)

Customer: “What is all this about! I stole nothing! I bought this computer! I paid for it just a minute ago!”

Me: *searching his things* “Sir, you have a wireless mouse, 3 CDs, 2 DVDs, a camera, and a portable radio hidden in your jacket. You can’t just walk out of here without paying for those.”

Customer: “But I bought the computer!”
