The lines gone dead?

So I was running through a list of options for a mixture of eight laptops a very good customer of mine wanted.

Me: "So I've got this one but I think the price might be too tasty for for you. It's a 15.6" screen like you want, i7, 1TB drive............I want £950.00 for it."

Deathly silence.............................a full minute later

Me: "Are you there?"
Customer: "I was just picking myself off the floor, and at that price it's a long way to fall!"


I love the rapport I have with my customers.

Teaching the future.

For those of you who don't know, Monique is a school teacher for reception.

Lady Monique's class

Monique: "Now class, what did Mary ride on when she went to Bethlehem?"
4yrOld1: "On an elephant miss?"
Monique: "No, try again."
4yrOld2: "On a giraffe miss?"
Monique: "No, anyone else?"
4yrOld3: "On a lion miss?"
Monique: "No, think about riding."
4yrOld4: "On a monster miss?"

I love my daughters job.

You forgot to buy this!

I was looking for a bag for my Lenovo X201 12.1 subnotebook and visited a site offering a right bargain! A messenger bag reduced from £49.99 to £4.99! Like most sites you have to create an account to purchase so I started the process and noticed you could pay via PayPal. When I clicked on that service the price jumped to £49.99 which immediately rang alarm bells in my head, why would it be £4.99 with a debit or Credit card and yet £49.99 with PayPal?

I decided not to continue the process and now they're emailing me which is interesting seeing as (I believe) I did not complete the signup process or agree to receive emails? I find their "We respect your right to privacy" and yet receiving emails confirms my opinion that something's iffy here.
