Firstly this is relevant to the business. We all have an office. We all need good coffee. Second Mrs D does help out where she can and this was one where she was trying to. On Sunday I went to get a new coffee maker in another electrical store, because, a few days before…
Thursday 17th September 2009 ‘herself’ went to D.I.D. electrical store in Airside retail park to buy a new coffee machine for the office. I had returned my most recent purchase because it kept leaking. ‘Her indoors’ decided it was a task she wished to complete and so she went in.
What happened next is nothing short of the most amazing…
sales: can I help you….
mrs D: yes I’m looking for a coffee machine
sales: have you seen the nespresso range… ?
mrs D: i was looking for with that would make a big pot of coffee to be honest…
sales: well this range actually stays fresher longer and the one in the coffee pot if you keep reheating… I don’t want to scare you but that gives you cancer
mrs D: [funny look given]
sales: no… its true
mrs D: well its not for me its for a regular real coffee drinker
sales: well tell him to come in and i’ll make him the best cup of coffee he’s ever had. I bought one of these [nespresso machines] for my girlfriend and she loves it… but, I dont actually drink coffee myself.
I’m still baffled….
