So, I went to Roosevelt field mall (you New Yorkers will know where this is).
I passed by the Smoking Everywhere booth, here's the dialogue (to the best of my memory):
Hey, do you smoke?
Did you ever smoke?
Come come, check these out, they feel just like smoking, you can enjoy smoking all over again without the cancer!
-Made in China?
They're made in our factories right here in the US! (A blatant lie ofcourse)
-Really? That's awesome!
Try this, it's apple flavor. You smoke hookah right? You look like a younger dude.
-Yes, I do. This apple tastes like crap by the way.
What do you mean? It's delicious, I love it! You've never used an electronic cigarette before?
-I have, just not one this bad.
Sir, we have the highest quality products. These go for $99. Your girlfriend here would love it too!
-Oh she hates these things.
Why? No bad breath, no cancer, nothing. They even smell good!
-Sorry, not interested dude.
How about a discount? $89.
-I just spent close to $300 on these things, so I'm good for a while.
I bet you haven't used one this good though!
-I bet you haven't either. *pulls out Provari*
What is that thing?
-Something like what you're selling, just not made like .... and actually works.
No my friend, you aren't getting it. New technologies have made these products much smaller. I bet you'll get better smoke out of my e-cigs.
-Here, try this. (Drips 2 drops of Vapor Renu Peppermint onto my HH.357 at 5.2v)
Wow, this is terrible compared to what I have. I'll tell you what, I'll give you extra flavors for free!
-Dude, I have hundreds already, and I know your product is made in a factory without quality control.
We deliver the best quality products in the US. Plus, that thing you have is too big, why do you even carry it around? You look ridiculous.
-Because I enjoy vaping from it.
You mean smoking? What is vaping? You must be new.
-I think I know a little more than you do. This is actually called vaping, not smoking. There isn't any smoke produced.
Sure, I still think that thing is big.
-That's what she said.
Come back for a minute!
-Can I help you with something?
Don't you want something smaller to use?
-Not really. I have this. *pulls out Ego w/DCT*
-Yes. this tank lasts me all week, and one of your cartomizers will last me 3 hours.
No, they last for a pack of cigarettes worth. Sir, you need to realize something. My product is better, it's what you need. It looks like a real cigarette so nobody will question you, and it works better too because it looks real.
-How much are they paying you to pester people? How about this, I'll sell you what I have. A battery and an atomizer and a bottle of Menthol e-liquid for $60. Deal?
I don't need that.
-yes you do, you obviously don't know what you're even selling. Take this, use it, and research it.
Fine, give me your phone number, I'll be giving you a call.
**Sells spare Ego battery w/1.5ohm Joye 510 atty, bottle of 11mg menthol**
*****3 days later...***
I quit selling those things, I can't believe the company made me fall for that ..... I actually quit smoking with what you sold me.
If I'm counting right, he should be on the forums very, very soon.
