Me: Excuse me, can you tell me your price on the Nokia 1100 please?
Shop Assistant: (consults book) yes it's $189.00
Me: Thank you, I'd like one please
SA: We don't have any in stock yet, and don't know when we're getting some.

Me: (confused!) Then why do you have them on display, if you don't have any for sale?
SA: For advertising.
