ê The Exchange á Here's another supershort story from East of the Web.
This one concerns a customer trying to exchange a faulty alarm clock.
Written completely in dialogue, the story highlights some familiar customer experiences and frustrations.
When did you buy the clock? Is the warranty still valid? Do you have a receipt? Do you have the original packaging? Anyone who's had to return an item at some point can probably relate to some of the frustrating questions asked by the store employee.
All the poor customer wants is an alarm clock that works.

The twist at the end is kind of cute, and also ties in to the modern consumer experience.
I expected there might be something like that, but it was done well enough.
In fact, the author managed to pack quite a bit of story

The Exchange is a short story(only 3 pages!).
The narrator tries to exchange the broken alarm clock but fails to show and proof of purchase.
The shopkeeper refuses to exchange the clock regardless any argument put forward by the narrator which naturally makes him frustrated.
And in the end of a long conversation( which is basically the whole story) with the shopkeeper when the narrator tends to leave the store, exasperated, he is told that there is an offer that day.
If he opens a store card that day he will get 5% off every purchase and (wait for it) a free Alarm Clock!
