Logical argu-whats?

Customer calls on the phone. I tell her about a deal we have on a (top major brand) computer. She retorts, saying "I don't want to buy that (top major brand) computer. You can buy them in other countries and that means they're no good."

Now, I cannot follow that line of reasoning for the life of me. Is that racist? Elitist? Just plain ignorant? I mean, the brand is sold here as well as abroad. Why would you not want a product, simply on the basis that it was exported? I can understand not buying imports, that would be racist. But since when is 'national shame' vogue? Whatever happened to 'buy Canadian' or 'buy America'? I don't get it at all. If anyone has a clue as to what she meant by that, please alleviate my suffering! Until Next Time,

The Armchair Anti-Export Maniac
