Me:  I need a thing to connect my Mac laptop computer to the thing that projects the thing on the screen.
Salesman:  Thing? You mean a cord?
Me:  Yeh, a cord. My friend told me that it was in your catalog for $19.95.
Salesman:  What kind of projector are you using?
Me:  I don’t know.
Salesman:  You need the model number of the projector.
Me:  Oh.
Salesman: Can you get that somewhere?
Me:  I will call my friend. I know he said something about the Airport.
Salesman: That’s the Apple wireless technology. It doesn’t have anything to do with what you’re asking.
Me:  Oh.
