"I'm waiting for a phone call from (unnamed customer) right now. They

demo for some Yahoos that don't even have a (expletive) clue. Not a

"Do I sound negative?

"I'm going to open a clue shop. For all these knuckleheads who don't
have a clue. They can come buy one from me."

I don't want to give you my brother-in-law's name in case his customer
is listening. His last name isn't "Vollbach."
