A Warranty for my Chewing Gum, Please
We go to the store almost constantly on vacation. We bring all kinds of things we will never use and forget tons of things we "need."
Yesterday we took our daily trip to --Mart for an air mattress pump. We decided to go for the quality and get the $20 Coleman model. Yowza!
So, our cashier offered us a one-year extended warranty to protect our investment. For the cost of only $2.50, we could rest easy at night for a full year, knowing that if our pump burst into incendiary destruction, we could have it replaced free of charge.
Why not offer me a deal where I pay 50 cents extra for my pack of chewing gum? Then if it loses its flavor after 30 minutes of chewing, I can bring it back in for a refund.
