Eugen to the Rescue

Today my co-worker Josh sent me an email directing me to a certain electronic store's website to buy a USB flashcard for $9.99. What a thoughtful and helpful guy! He knew I was in need of one but awaiting a sale price.
I tried to order it online... didn't work... tried to print out the information on it... printer's out of ink... so off to the shop I went!

At said store I was helped by a tall, clean cut Eastern European twentysomething, let's call him "Davor". He got me the USB card and proudly announced it was on sale for $49.99...
I was concerned. We went to the webpage together and the price did in fact read $49.99. He let me check my email and show him the email from Josh-- but this time the link read $49.99 -- not $9.99 as it did an hour ago! Davor asked another coworker about it who said it may have been a temporary glitch on the website and pointed out that I didn't have any proof of the $9.99 offer. They both agreed that such a promotion wouldn't exist because the discount wouldn't cover the product cost.

I was frustrated and upset. I had driven out to the shop for the sole purpose of purchasing this flashcard. I thanked him anyway and turned to leave... in that same moment another taller, Eastern European man (let's call him "Eugen" somewhat less stylish than Davor) approached Davor with the printout of the website featuring the card for $9.99! Davor called me back, down trodden I had already turned to leave the shop, and nodded to the printout evidence with a smile.

Yay! I finally have a USB flashcard and for the phenomenal price of $9.99 (with the mail in rebate which I have to do...).
Thanks Josh. Thanks Davor. Thanks Eugen.
Next up.... learning how to use the flashcard... and maybe purchasing one of those neat necklace/keychain things so I don't lose it!!

hey Kelley! I agree with Sarah on your interesting choice of names. Very creative. Also a great story, very good reading material. Still waiting patiently for the much anticipated "top five".
