It was shortly before my 40th birthday, and realising that I was woefully out of shape, it was time to do something about it. Buying a bicycle seemed like a good way to start to get myself fit again.
The clerk asked if he could help me, and I replied “What do you have for a fat old lady with a big, tender posterior who hasn’t ridden in years?”
Without hesitation and not even blinking, the clerk replied “Well, why don’t you bring her in, and we’ll see what we can do”.
And with that he clinched the sale!
