(I’ve just done a sales pitch for internet service.)
Customer: “Oh honey, I’m 73. I wouldn’t know that to do with the internet. I can hardly run the computer my daughter gave me.”
Me: “Well, I’ll be honest. I’m 24 and I do struggle with them from time to time.”
Customer: “Boy, I sure wouldn’t want to be your age, what with all the bad things happening in the world today.”
Me: “I don’t know, I’m pretty optimistic most of the time. I think we’ll be okay.”
Customer: “You’ve never been married, have you?”
