No Answer

I’m in the market for a new cell phone. So I walk down the street (I know, pretty terrestrial strategy) to my local Cingular store.

I explain to the salesperson that I need a phone that has good coverage, syncs with a Mac, and that I can use via Bluetooth to connect to the net when I’m away from my wi-fi.

The salesman pauses, takes a deep breath and says, “You know, you should check out CNet. They’re pretty good when it comes to cell phone reviews.”

Um, but, well, I’m here, in the store, right now…

I had to get out of there before I started channeling the Alec Baldwin character from Glengarry Glen Ross.


Concentration is important!
