Bill: "There are a few issues we need to discuss."
Contractor: "Ah, you have our basic support option. Calls are free for the
first 90 days and $75 a call thereafter. Okay?"
Bill: "Uh, yeah... the first issue is the living room. We think its a little
smaller than we anticipated."
Contractor: "Yeah. Some compromises were made to have it out by the release
Bill: "We won't be able to fit all our furniture in there."
Contractor: "Well, you have two options. You can purchase a new, larger
living room; or you can use a Stacker."
Contractor: "Yeah, it allows you to fit twice as much furniture into the
room. By stacking it, of course, you put the entertainment center on the
couch... the chairs on the table... etc. You leave an empty spot, so when
you want to use some furniture you can unstack what you need and then put it
back when you're done."
Bill: "Uh... I dunno... issue two. The second issue is the light fixtures.
The bulbs we brought with us from our old home won't fit. The threads run
the wrong way."
Contractor: "Oh! That's easy. Those bulbs aren't plug and play. You'll have
to upgrade to the new bulbs."
Bill: "And the electrical outlets? The holes are round, not rectangular. How
do I fix that?"
Contractor: "Just uninstall and reinstall the electrical system."
Bill: "You're kidding!?"
Contractor: "Nope. Its the only way."
Bill: "<sigh> Well... I have one last problem. Sometimes, when I have guests
over, someone will flush the toilet and it won't stop. The water pressure
drops so low that the showers don't work."
Contractor: "That's a resource leakage problem. One fixture is failing to
terminate and is hogging the resources preventing access from other fixtures
Bill: "And how do I fix that?"
Contractor: "Well, after each flush, you all need to exit the house, turn
off the water at the street, turn it back on, reenter the house and then you
can get back to work."
Bill: "That's the last straw. What kind of product are you selling me?"
Contractor: "Hey, nobody's making you buy it."
Bill: "And when will this be fixed?"
Contractor: "Oh, in your next house -- which will be ready to release
sometime near the end of next year. It was due out this year, but we've had
