E-Read My Lips: No!

, , , | Right | December 21, 2020

Our bookshop sells e-readers, and like a lot of electronic devices, they are relatively expensive.

Customer: “No, €179 is too much for it. Can’t you give me a discount?”

Me: “Sorry, I can’t give discounts on these.”

She thinks about it for a while and then her face lights up.

Customer: “I produced an audiobook.”

Me: “That’s lovely?”

Customer: “It’s a beautiful composition of texts and music, perfect for the Christmas season. It comes up to €90. What do you say, I exchange an audiobook for an e-reader?”

Me: *Pause* “We’re a company. We sell products, not exchange goods. Besides, the math doesn’t add up.”

Customer: “But it’s so expensive.”

Me: “I’ll let you think about it for a moment.”

She eventually left!
