Re: [rumori] The Grinch who stole Droplift

There were some messages from store clerks and managers on the droplift
guestbook, asking what to do..
"should we give it away? I've been charging $5..."
and one of the responses was
"sure! charge whatever you want!"
which I wholly support because that throws a monkey wrench that store's
accounting system, too! How does the central office resolve where that $5
comes from, which record syndicate gets a portion, what wholesale cost to use
to calculate profit? If the clerks just pocket the five, so much the better!
They're collaborators!

This is a terrific prank!

Some of them should be "cutouts!" That'll show 'em...
AND with stolen UPCs!
AND labeled "Sale Item!"
