Last Friday I went to Great Eastern Mall to buy an industrial grade drill, a Bosch to be precise.
I walked up to a sales boy and asked the models they carry. I am aware that these drills are not cheap, RM400 and above. And Black & Decker just doesn’t cut it to hang mom’s heavy vintage framed mirror.
NoktahHitam: I want one of these. What’s included?
Sales Boy: Oh this one? This one cost RM 459.
Err, I asked what’s in the box. Not the price. So I revisited the question.
Sales Boy: This one is 550 watt.
He’s not answering the question!
NoktahHitam: Look, I just want to know what’s inside the box.
Sales Boy: You get the machine, the handle and the plug.
Duh! If I’m paying for a drill, I should get a drill. What kind of sorry ass answer is that. I gave him a grumpy look and tilted my head to the side.
Sales Boy: Oh sir, one more thing included.
NoktahHitam: Which is?
Sales Boy: The instruction manual.
For a second, I thought of landing a punch on his wide forehead. On second thought, I’ll use nails instead and avoid breaking my index finger.
ps: DIY’ed my own charger and used the Black & Decker instead.
pss: The next time you want to buy a power tool, make sure it’s wired, not chargables one.
