“How can you serve cheese without crackers? Why don’t you open some crackers?”
Seriously lady? I am on my last thread of “nice” here and I’m not SERVING cheese, you are SAMPLING cheese oh and by the way? Where else in this region do you get to SAMPLE your food before you decide to buy it!!
“Why didn’t I think of that?? Well, we aren’t actually SAMPLING crackers today!”

One father was lamenting that his thirteen-year-old only wants a $360 new video game that is not compatible with all the games and applications he currently owns.

In each case, the initial purchase was just the beginning of the need to add-on. Expensive hobbies abound.
