Whilst I was building my impressive stack of bits to buy I commented to a friend that "I've got a credit card and I'm not afraid to use it." The shop assistant behind me who was rearranging the shelves of Mind Games at the time then piped up with "Is that a pick up line? It is for people in retail!" :)
