Shop Assistant: Hello sir
RC: Ah, hi
Shop Assistant: What can I do for you?
RC: Well, I was kinda wondering whether I could return this Private Steer for a refund, I only bought it on Friday you know.
Shop Assistant: It doesn't appear broken sir? , seems to be in fine working order.
RC: Yes but I was thinking since I paid you $250,000 for it, it might be able to run down a Kiwi sprinter that runs like a drunk. See I actually had my eye on last weeks special, the Wild Iris Underwood/Turnbull/Cups combo for a mere $55,000
Shop Assistant: Yes, yes, very popular that was.
RC: Mmm, I noticed, so maybe we could swap?
Shop Assistant: I'd love to help but we're all out of Wild Iris. This weeks special is Fighting Tiger, a cheap import from Perth, a steal at $50,000.
RC: Tiger eh, well thats very carnivorous of you but I was thinking more along the lines of a racehorse. I mean a tiger on a racecourse would be liable to eat its jockey, trainer and have Alf Matthews for dessert.
Shop Assistant: Whereas a horse would eat carrots instead...
RC: Good point. I'll take one Fighting Tiger thanks.
