"I paid $120 for my
Dreamcast, and I was reading last night on the internet that
it sells new for $99."
"Wait, wait. Not keeping up here. On The Internet? Never heard of
"Sure... So you
see, I paid too much for my Dreamcast and I want some money
Well, good luck on your quest."
"I bought my
Dreamcast from you."
"Does that make me the protagonist or antagonist in this
"Am I the good guy or the bad guy?"
"Uhm, you see I
paid too much for my Dreamcast."
"Yes, yes. Further you also can read some book called 'On the
Internet' which sounds quite interesting."
"Just give me some
money back off the Dreamcast I bought from you."
"You have to!"
"You charged me too
"First, assuming that was even true, why would such an act
invalidate our previous transaction? I don't recall me
forcing you to buy the unit, plus I recall you being quite
excited to be receiving the unit."
"Continuing on, in this Internet book you were reading,
perhaps you didn't take notice that the price of the Dreamcast
is $99 US. Now both the United States and Canada both use
dollars as currency, though they are of different values.
Why, if the Dreamcast was $99 in Taiwanese dollars, I could
buy one for less than what I spent for two movie tickets last
"As you may or may not have concluded by now, the price you
read of $99 for the aforementioned Dreamcast would be for 99
American dollars, which translates to about 153 Canadian
dollars. Being that the Dreamcast I sold you yesterday was
for $120, I conclude I sold it for too little though it is too
late to amend the transaction. Or is it? dot dot
"I'm sorry. I
didn't realize the prices were in American."
"Spoken like a gentlemen."
