I went to Barnes and Noble to buy a book for my little sister's birthday, which is on Monday. As I'm checking out the man says, "Do you have a membership?"
M: Would you like to buy a membership and get 10% off every purchase?
J: No, not...today.
M: I'm sad. (He said as he looks at me through his eyelashes with a slight pout.)
M: (Big pout with lip jutting out.) I want you to buy the membership.
J: (surprised) Oh. Unfortunately, I only come in to buy books 3-4 times a year as gifts.
M: (No more pouting.) OK.
When I told Wendell about this story he about died. "I should try that," Wendell said dripping with sarcasm. "The next time someone doesn't buy a warranty I should say, 'I'm sad. I want you to buy the warranty.' Good grief!"
