Are you shouting "buy my widgets"?

Imagine you’re hanging out with some friends and along comes this person you don’t know, who gets right in your face and blurts out . . .

If you’re like me, you’re probably going to say something like . . .

“Uhh, ok. I’ll keep that in mind. And if I need some Widgets I’ll call Widgets R Us, not you!”
