Overpriced Desk Chairs

 

 

I went on this website for some deck chairs.


They had this nothing of a chair called the Harborside for almost $500. I was looking for 2 chairs, so that would’ve been a whooping $1,000 almost.

After a while on their web page, a chat box came up asking if I needed any help. 


It was funny because the guys name was Jake, as in the commercial, “Hi, this is Jake from State Farm!”


Anyway, I must’ve been annoyed at their ridiculous prices and I had this farce of a dialogue with Jake. 


Jake: Hello, We see you are checking out.  Can we help in any way?


Me: trying to download a 25% off coupon…can you assist?


Jake: We don’t have any coupons or discount codes. 


Me: Just overpriced then.  {smiley}


Me: Why do you charge so much for such cheap merchandise?


Jake: It’s grade A teak which is the highest quality grade you buy but go on.


Me: It’s a tree! Why should I pay $1000 for 2 small desk chairs.  There is plenty of tweak in the forest for free!


Me:  Can you explain?


Jake: *Teak. You’re more than welcome to grow your own forest and make these but you’ll have to move to a warmer climate. You can educate yourself better with our guide here [and he attached a link]. 


Me: Hmmm. Would you pay $1000 for thee little wooden chairs. 


Me: Also, I’m pretty educated.  TY


Jake: Yes, I have 4 on [my grandmother’s porch]


Me: You didn’t pay $2000 for 4 chairs for your grandmother’s porch.  NO WAY!  I bet you got a big employee discount. 


At which point, the chat box quickly bleeped off the screen!


Jake from State Farm…you didn’t really buy 4 chairs for your grandmother for $2000 did you???  😉
