Bad Service...

I was in a golf shop on Saturday (12/23) looking for Ben Hogan's 'Five
Lessons, The Modern Fundamentals of Golf' and I overheard the following
conversation between a Woman buying clubs for her husband and a clerk.

    Woman: Hello, I was interested in buying clubs for my husband.
    Clerk: Steel or graphite?
    Woman: What's the difference?
    Clerk: Graphite is better.
       Me: Why do you say graphite is better?
    Clerk: It hits farther than steel.
       Me: True, if you can swing it. (literally and financially)

The clerk was actually seemed to be a nice guy. However, I think he could
have made a better attempt at fitting the clubs to her husband. Is this a
common occurence?

After thinking about it, I wish I had said, If graphite is better why do the
pros use steel?

Later,

Kevin, you didn't finish the story.  What did the woman buy, steel or
graphite?

Honestly, I don't know what she eventually purchased. I hope she asked a ton
of questions and then walked out without buying anything.
