Sidney reread the song list and artists. He noticed that the classic song "Moon River" was sung by Danny Williams; Sidney thought that the original artist was actually Andy Williams. He told Gita that he had his doubts. She told him not to buy it, but he decided to take a chance on it—after all, it was only $11.99. What could they lose, he joked. When they got home and played the CDs in that set, both of them were disappointed.

"When are you going to learn to listen to me?" Gita asked Sidney as she rapped him in the head with the box of the CD set. Sidney told her that he would take it back to see if he could exchange it. "Of course not!" Gita said. "The receipt says that you cannot return an opened package."

Sidney took it back anyway; he hoped that he could charm the sales clerk into giving him an exchange. He couldn't. She said that the only thing she could do was buy the CD set back from him. He said that that was okay with him, figuring that she was going to pay him $11.99 plus tax. She typed the title of the set into her computer. A few moments later, she told him that she would be able to give him 70 cents. "You mean seventy cents for each CD?" Sidney asked. "No, 70 cents for the set," she replied. Sidney laughed. He was getting ripped off by two different companies for the same item. On his way out of the store, he decided he would regift the set as an office Christmas present.

Bộ đĩa CD giá mặc cả (2)

Sidney đọc lại danh sách bài nhạc và nghệ sĩ. Anh thấy bản nhạc cổ điển "Dòng sông trăng" hát bởi Danny Williams; Sidney nghĩ là nghệ sĩ gốc là Andy Williams. Anh bảo Gita là anh nghi ngờ. Cô bảo anh đừng mua nó, nhưng anh quyết định lấy nó - sau tất cả, chỉ tốn $11.99. Họ có thể mất gì đâu, anh đùa. Khi họ về nhà và mở CD trong bộ đó ra, cả hai người đều thất vọng.

"Chừng nào anh mới học cách lắng nghe em?" Gita hỏi Sidney khi đánh vào đầu anh với cái hộp dĩa CD. Sidney bảo cô là anh có thể đem trở lại xem có thể đổi được không. "Dĩ nhiên là không !" Gita nói. "Hoá đơn nói là anh không thể trả lại hàng đã mở."

Sidney dù sao cũng đem trả lại; anh hy vọng anh có thể dụ cô bán hàng đổi. Anh không thể. Cô nói rằng cô chỉ có thể mua lại bộ CD của anh. Anh nói okay, tưởng là cô sẽ trả lại anh $11.99 cộng thuế. Cô đánh tựa của bộ CD lên máy tính. Giây lát sau, cô bảo anh là cô có thể trả cho anh 70 xu. "Cô nói 70 xu cho mỗi dĩa CD?" Sidney hỏi. "Không, 70 xu cho cả bộ," cô trả lời. Sidney cười. Anh bị trấn lột bởi hai công ty khác nhau cho cùng một mặt hàng. Khi đi ra khỏi cửa hàng, anh quyết định sẽ tặng bộ CD làm quà giáng sinh trao đổi trong văn phòng.
