How Not to Sell a Laptop

Excuse me, have you got any more information about this laptop?
(Pointing to a small piece of card which I was already looking at) Aye.
Oh, it hasn't got a firewire then?
And it comes with Works?
Aye, they all do.
Hmmm. Are these the only laptops you've got?

(Long pause while I wait, in vain, for more information) And is there any chance of getting anything off this one for cash?
Nah mate, it's already in the sale (but still more expensive than it costs online)
It's alright then, I've seen another one in Curry's.
Ok. See you, mate.

I went home, and bought from Amazon.
