I'm usually fairly polite in stores -- you know, never openly mocking what they have for sale.
But once I was in REI and saw some new Arcteryx windbreaker that was about $475 I think. I just completely burst out laughing. Salesperson came and asked me if everything was OK. I apologized, but did tell him why. Seriously, what magic does this windbreaker do. (If I was in full asshole mode, I probably would've asked, "Does this thing give blowjobs?" (or mega-asshole "Does this thing fellate the wearer?")) He said they told them something or other in their spring product line training that it had some super-special taped seams (or was it the water-proofing seam thingies that go over the zipper) that had the closest tolerances in the industry and that was the official reason for the price. Um, yeah. I saw them again at the end of the season for $325 or so. But, still, yeah.
Sooner or later your legs give way, you hit the ground.
