I needed a few 16 GB flash drives to share data with a client’s customers. The client offered to buy them for me while out running errands.
Client: (calling from the store) They’ve got some with a keychain loop on them – is that what you want?
Me: Sure, that’s fine.
Client: Oh! Wait, I found others. I’ll bring those.
Me: Okay, as long as they say “16 GB.” It’s okay if they have a higher number but I need at least 16 gigabytes.
Client: Yeah, it’s bigger than 16. Gotta go, I’m in line!
When she dropped them off I noticed that the bags were MUCH larger than they had to be. She’d bought two 1 TB hard drives, and both came with a free 16 GB flash drive as a bonus.
Me: Uhm, these may be a bit much. I can’t give these to the customers. The little one is fine, but I don’t need the big one.
Client: But look! You get four for the price of two!
Me: Well, we only need two for
the price of two.
