Arrogance + Ignorance = Bad Experience
So a wealthy Dallas woman comes upon a great money making scheme: she's going to buy up all the iPhones at a local AT&T store and sell them on eBay.
Not bad -- its worked before for things like the xBox and Playstation and Wii, right?
Of course, she can't be arsed to actually wait in line with the hoi polloi, so she drives her Range Rover to the store, arriving about fifteen minutes before the store opened.
With $16,000.00 in hand, she confidently strides to the front of the line and offers to buy the leader's position from him.
After some negotiation, he agrees to sell her the position for $800.00.
No problems, right? I mean, she IS going to make the money back reselling the phones on eBay.
As the store opened, she confidently strode inside, almost giddy that her plan had come to fruition.
Watch what happens next.
