When Subtlety Fails (and Greed Takes Over)…December 18, 2011
Dan: Hey, baby, were you serious about buying me a bike for Christmas?
Me: Yeah, if that’s what you really want.
Dan: Well, there’s this guy selling recumbents on eBay. Really good brand… they sell retail for $1000 to $2000.
Me: How much is he selling them for?
Dan: Looks like they’re going for around $400.
Me: Does he ship them?
Me: How much is shipping?
Me: ARE YOU GETTING ME SATELLITE RADIO FOR CHRISTMAS??!?!?!?!?!? BECAUSE I’VE BEEN WANTING THAT FOR YEARS, DROPPING HINTS RIGHT AND LEFT, AND I STILL DON’T HAVE IT. I’LL GET YOU THE BIKE, BUT HEAR ME WHEN I SAY: I WANT SOME SATELLITE RADIO!
