Talking with the Verizon salesman today was a huge Spinal Tap flashback. The whole store was abuzz with the fresh release of the newest Razor phone, and the guy selling it was extra excited about the great reception which it gets.
Super Salesguy: “Look here on the side of the screen: it has seven bars to show the reception. All of our other phones have only four or– at the most– five bars.”
Wise Wife: (with slight pause) “Hey, that’s great. But does that mean that it gets better reception, or just that it has a different kind of measurement.”
SS: “Well, it’s better. It has seven bars instead of five.”
WW: “So, it has a better antenna or something?”
SS: “Maybe, I don’t know. But it has two more levels of reception. It’s two better, isn’t it?”
WW: (kindly) “…OK, what other features does it have?”
