John Y’s Musings from the Middle: Browsing Fee

Browsing FeeI waste so much time browsing in technology stores –and then not buying anything–that I am considering charging Office Depot, Staples, and Best Buy a “browsing fee” of $4.50 every half-hour I browse.

I am valuable to them even though I rarely purchase anything because I make them look busy with an extra customer.

That is until this friend remembers seeing me last week browsing at Staples and the week before that seeing me browsing at Best Buy.
