Those who sell, what do they buy?

Those who sell, what do they buy?

In the nineties, when I wanted to buy a good walkman, I asked to the guys (I work in a big store) : What is reliable? What brand is after-sales service unprone (which, I suppose, is not English, let me play)?

They answered me : Aiwa! So Aiwa it’s been…

So it is : “Those who sell, what do they buy?”. When you learn that many Microsoft people use Macintosh, you smile, right? I keep this in mind when I have to buy things – knowing that I need a grain of salt. Some guys use a brand because they got it for free, or because they’re interested…

The store guys liked to mock me about Apple computers in the 90s (“it’s almost dead”), but had so many problems with PCs and Windows that they all own Macs today…

What about choices?

Steve Jobs invented the iPhone & iPad, but his kids were not allowed to use them. Isn’t it interesting? Why are we curious when we spot an article about an artist we love, who is asked “What are the best albums of your life?”? And writers? Who do they read?

When you meet a professional, do you ask about their tools? A graphic designer? What printer brand? A photographer? What bag? Why?

Where else can we watch this? Who should we ask? The elderly?

 

Thanks for reading!
