Clever staff at a computer store put “books for study” on an expensive gaming mouse after a student asked for discreet packaging so his mum would not find out he bought another one, leading to a sharp increase in sales from other young secretive gamers.

The story was shared by the Singapore-based computer store ‘Endless Passion’ in a social media post in late May.

The customer, who was not named, was interested in buying a new Logitech G Pro X Superlight Wireless Gaming Mouse.

According to the conversation between the two, the customer asked the vendor to wrap the mouse in simple packaging in an attempt to keep its contents a secret when he went to pick it up from the store later on.

One of the client’s messages read: “I don’t want to let my mom know I buy new mouse again.” (sic)

The savvy salesman not only obliged but decided to take it one step further writing ‘books for study :)’ on the plain packaging for the mouse, which cost SGD 239 (GBP 135), apparently referring to the fact the customer was a student. Netizen ‘Arief Dzufyan’ commented: “This is quality service.” ‘Zoul Muhammad’ wrote:

“Thank you. As an uncle, I will watch out [for] my nieces and nephews.” (sic) ‘Jelwin Geuan’ said: “6 stars straightforward.” (sic) The post has also seemingly garnered more business for Endless Passion.

The computer store posted earlier today (3rd June): “The number of request for discreet packaging keeps coming… We got you guys covered!”(sic)
