This really happened...

I had a guy come up to me yesterday as I was leaving a store. He was counting a big wad of cash and said to me, "I can get you anything you want at half price".

I said, "Half price, huh?"

He said, "That's right."

I said, "I want you to go home and paint my house."

He was laughing as he turned away.

No, I am not sure he was talking about electronics, although he may have been. No evidence of his wares were in sight.

I have one of those, and they cost too much to maintain. I'll just buy another bike instead.

It was kinda strange for me, too!

Don't make too much of it. It was kinda surreal that somebody would try to sell me something illegal right out in front of a shopping center. I was kinda wishing I could do that Jedi thing - "You don't want to sell me dead sticks - you want to go home and rethink your life."
