LAS VEGAS, NEVADA -- It was a close call for one motorcyclist late yesterday evening as he was just moments away from a severe case of buyer’s remorse for spending $2,000 on motorcycle gear that’s slightly newer than the gear he already had.
“You know how it is, you find the perfect helmet and a few months later they release the same helmet, but now it has really cool red accents,” said Malik Evans, the motorcyclist in question. “So you get it, but now your jacket and gloves don’t match. So you have to upgrade those as well.”
Faced with the reality that he’s dipped further into crippling debt, Malik was on the verge of returning his new gear. That’s when Malik caught a glimpse of something at the bottom of the box.
“I tossed all the packaging bubble bags to the side and there they were,” Malik said. “Stickers included... for free!”
Inside the box were an assortment of tickers that were mass-produced at a cost of about 3 cents per sticker.
“I paid for five pieces of gear, but technically received over ten products,” Malik said. “So I basically got double the loot for no additional charge. I practically robbed these suckers blind.” Also included in the box was a wine voucher.
“I think they throw that in there so people like me have a peace offering to give to their wives, but it doesn’t work.”
