'Just because they serve you...'

Life Early Christmas shopping trip to Chester. It's the kind of place which feels like a Dickensian Christmas even before the lights have been erected. Although the customer service is always heaps better than in some parts of Liverpool, today the clerks seemed over attentive. I was in one of those Gadget Shop-type shops and found one of those game built-in arcade joysticks. Before I'd even selected PacMan I felt a presence on my shoulder telling me all about it. Every time I lost a life, he'd say 'You lost a life there.' Well, yes, I know, it's because YOU'RE TALKING TO ME. Then he puts his arm on my shoulder.
'Just call me if you want one or you need any other help with anything', he slithers.
I pick up my bag. I walk out of the shop...
