In a preemptive attempt to escape the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping, a woman bought what she thought was an ipad for $200 in a gas station parking lot. This is the future, no need to go into stores to pick up presents for your loved ones. You can get amazing deals from your car window, without having to worry about pesky hassles like reciepts!
Then what a surprise when she found out that her "ipad" was in fact an ipad-sized mirror. WHAT?! Not from the honest gentleman selling major electronics from his car??? Who'd have thought?
If I was her, rather than learning the very obvious lesson of "don't trust strange gas station peddlers" I would use this situation to completely revamp my holiday shopping strategy. With some simple wrapping, you can make your dismal, cheap gifts look amazing. What? Oh this isn't an iPad I bought you? Wow, I must have been scammed. Wink wink.
And the real crime here is those woman's glasses. IF YOU DON'T NEED THEM DON'T WEAR THEM. Whew, ok. I'm done here.
