This past weekend, I broke down and spent my Best Buy gift certificates from buying our new tv. I had wanted to get a microwave. Unfortunately we have no cabinet to mount the microwave under yet, so until then, I didn’t want it sitting there just waiting for it’s warranty to expire before even being used. So then I thought about a portable A/C that we could move from room to room, but they don’t sell those in the stores and I couldn’t use the gift certificates online.
So I settled on the Apple TV, I decided to go for fun, since all my practical ideas fell through. So I went up to the guy in the Electronics department and here is the conversation that ensued:
Employee: Can I help you?
Me: Yes, I am would like to get an Apple TV.
Employee: Um, Apple doesn’t make a TV.
Me: Yes, I know that, I would like that device right there called the Apple TV.
Employee: Oh, yeah, what would you like to know about it?
Me: Nothing, I want to buy it.
Employee: Oh, ok, do you have an 80 gig iPod video?
Me: (Thinking, what does that have to do with anything?) Yeah
Employee: Oh cool, well we’ll take this up to the register then.
