Nikon is a friend of ours. Heâ€™s been a bit full of himself since he was described favourably as â€śthe very best cameras ever made by Nikon, or anyone.â€ť Itâ€™s given him a lot of confidence that â€“Â to be honest â€“Â some people find annoying.
For example, while out for a drink with a friend one evening he spied this spivy-looking chap sitting on the other side of the pub. As bold as brass he gets up and marches over to the poor guy, whoâ€™s enjoying a drink with his girlfriend. He buts into the conversation and says â€śAlright!? Can I take yer picture, mate?â€ť
â€śUm, yeahâ€ť the guy says. â€śIf you like.â€ť
â€śClick, whir. Click, whir. Click, whir,â€ť says Nikon. â€śCan you just look over here for a minute?â€ť
â€śErr, actually no. I think thatâ€™s enough now.â€ť
â€śOh. Right. Fair enough.â€ť
Everyone likes to see a smart arse put back in their box, donâ€™t they.
