There is a reason I don’t work in retail, especially when there is commission involved. First and foremost, I don’t have the ability to talk out my ass. Now don’t get me wrong, many salespeople are wonderful and full of helpful advice, and then there is the other kind. Like the guy we had the pleasure of dealing with at the music store the other day that used a fast food analogy when discussing the purchase of a keyboard.
Yes, that’s right folks; apparently buying the keyboard without the stand is like buying a hamburger without the bun. And he didn’t stop there, oh no, the dude was on a roll; he went on to tell me that the keyboard without the pedal was like getting the burger without fries.
