Shopping surprise

Post by Philosophy Explorer » Wed Jan 03, 2018 10:40 pm

I needed a replacement for my phone. Was paying $77 a month. Placed the order today.

Two months ago the phone's price was $130. Now it's $100 (which is another nice surprise). Discovered the service dropped $10 a month to $67/month. In effect it's like getting a phone for free assuming the new service price holds for the next two years.

I figure my carrier is getting more competitive. Have you a similar story?

Shocking surprise.

I used to go to the self-torture chambers in my country. It was specially designed and built on the donation by a prominent businessman for lonesome masochists. You know, the type with way below the minimal required social skills to get along with other humans.

One day I walked in, for the hundredth time if any, and to my surprize the electric current running through my body burned my left leg clean off of my body.

The good streak did not last long: they called an electrician who fixed the short that caused the ten times lethal strength of current.

(This has been an au gratis fictional piece.)
