On the left the Prima Official Star Wars Battlefront II Game Guide, on the right Simple Solution Cat Stain and Odor Remover.
After I took five boxes of rubbish to the recycling centre at our local Tesco, I popped next door to Pets at Home and PC World for a couple of essentials. In both places I was asked questions the answers to which appeared obvious to me.
Pets at Home
I handed over a bottle of Simple Solution Cat Stain and Odor Remover to the woman at the cash desk.
Me: This is great stuff!
Woman: “Really? What do you use it for, … cats?”
Me: [Pausing to stop myself saying something sarcastic.] “Yes. Cats.”
She’s now got me wondering, what other things can I use it for? Does she have recipes?
The only reason that I got any good at Star Wars Battlefront was because of the Prima Official Game Guide. So I reckoned that the appropriate guide for Star Wars Battlefront II might be similarly useful. So I popped next door (from Pets at Home) to PC World.
At the front of the queue I handed over the book to the woman at the till. She took it and scanned it.
Woman: Is this for home use?
Me: [Pausing to stop myself saying something sarcastic.] Yes. Home use.
How do much I wish that I could have said, “No. No, this is for the first Scottish Episcopal Church All-Clergy Star Wars Battlefront II Online Gaming Expo next month”! It could have been a taxable expense if there was such an event.
