Many years ago I was a piano & organ salesman in a store that sold Steinways (in case you don't know,Steinway Pianos are one of the world's premier instruments,very expensive) & our customers tended to be well educated & well off.
Except for this woman.
She comes in & starts banging on the pianos & as I approach she's in front of a Steinway upright ($5000 in 1980!
) & says to me "These new pianos are terrible! How could anyone buy one?"
I say "Ma'am,this is a Steinway,are you familiar with them? What seems to be the problem?"
"Well I can't sing with these like I can my piano at home"
A little perplexed,I ask her what brand of piano she has,she doesn't remember,but "It's much better than these awful things"
"What do you mean you can't sing with these?"
"My piano is so much better,these new ones,they're different,they make me sing too high"
*Got it,I know what she's talking about now,so I ask her* "Ma'am,how long have you had your piano?"
"And have you ever had your piano tuned?
"...they have to be tuned?"
"Yes ma'am,what has happened is your piano has dropped several steps in pitch over the years & is no longer in tune.Would you like me to schedule a tuning for you?"
"Not if it'll sound like these new things,how horrible! How could I sing then?"
I was finally able to ease her out of the store,all the while complaining about our terrible pianos.As soon as she's out of the store I turn around & my 2 CWs & me just fall down laughing
