So people think that the high street is on its arse. I wonder why that is? Well, it could be because of shit like this.
Having decided that the Surface Pro is the next laptop/tablet for me I – rather rashly – decided that it might be a good idea to go and see one. Unfortunately I thought PC World might be my best bet. What a mistake.
Arriving at PC World with my little daughter in tow I was approached by an earnest young man.
“Can I help you.”, he said without a trace of irony.
“Do you have the Surface Pro?”, I said, dooming myself to disappointment.
“No. We don’t stock it.”, there was a brief pause. “We’ve got the regular Surface though!”. Clearly this was an inspired after thought.
“Er, no, I want the Pro thanks.”.
“Right. Ok.”, and with that he was gone. As was my patience…
