ladder man

I felt a bit sorry for this guy working in Yodobashi Camera. He can't have felt too good sitting atop this stepladder all day. I mean, just imagine the conversation he must've had with his wife when he got home.

wife: Good day at work?
man: Not bad.
wife: What did you do today?
man: Ah, well, you know, the usual.
wife: Planning future business strategies?
man: Er, yeah, a bit of that. And, er, I sat on a stepladder all afternoon too.
wife: Eh? Why were you doing that? Punishment?
man: No. I was trying to sell something.
wife: What, stepladders?
man: No. Cameras.
wife: So where does the stepladder come in?
man: My boss said if I was in a higher position than the customers, they might respect me more and buy more as a result. But later I think I saw the boss and my supervisor laughing at me.
wife: So did you sell any cameras?
man: No, but a few people were interested in the stepladder.

Too bloody funny! Hey, I'm down in Osaka this weekend! Yeeeeeeeee haaaaaaaaaaaaa!

I saw a woman sitting on a step ladder in a clothes shop in Mexico. It's cheaper than putting alarm magnets on all the clothes.

ROFL. I saw them doing this in the Yodobashi in Machida (Kanagawa-ken) about 3 weeks ago.

Bizarre.
