Then he launched into a 30 second commercial on this magic drink his wife sells and all the health benefits and immune system boosters.
I let him have it with both barrels. "You almost died recently but now you want us to buy some snake oil your wife is selling?" Most people couldn't stop laughing. I don't know if he's been back.
Four or five of these magic potions come out every year. It's all a marketing scam. Still can't believe they sucker people into buying it. Then again, there are a lot of dumb-asses in this world.
