For some reason I was thinking about this on the bus and it's stuck with me. Was in London Drugs many moons ago (about 4 years) buying a television. As I remember the conversation went something like this
Customer: I'm looking for a tv. Salesman: Great, so the main question is, how big is your car? Customer: Well it's a truck. Salesman: Excellent, so this tv here is a great buy and will fit in the back of your truck. Customer: Yeah it would.Customer is now totally distracted from the cost, focusing on the size of the tv. He was good and was selling a truck load of televisions as we bought a few other bits and peices with a very, very slow salesman.
