the name of the dream

an underhand sales-pitch

 

in a small town which only had four or five shops in its high street

 

one of the shops sold mobile phones

 

i needed a phone for someone else and in the next scene a salesman is singing the virtues of a phone

 

it was matte black and had everything a modern phone should have and one or two new features which made it a good buy

 

i decided to get the new phone for myself and give the phone i was using to the person who needed one

 

it was a done deal until the salesman gave me the phone he had been showing me as the phone i would be buying

 

i wanted the model of phone for sure but i wanted it in a box that hadn't been opened

 

the salesman tried to fob me off with the phone he had been demonstrating and nearly broke down in tears when i insisted that i would only buy a phone in a box

 

his emotional ploy nearly worked and it was touch and go for a scene or two of the dream as i started feeling sorry for him

 

in the end, i didn't buy the phone and decided to give the person who needed a phone one i no longer used
