Lorenzo: Have you bought a new television yet?
Katia: No, I’m still looking at consumer reviews and weighing my options. I’m not sure yet what size I want or what features I need. I’m keeping my options open for now.
Lorenzo: I thought your old TV stopped working three weeks ago. You still haven’t made up your mind about buying a new one?
Katia: Oh, I’ve decided to buy a new one. It’s which one I’m going to buy that’s making me hesitate. There are so many options to choose from. I want to approach this logically and decide only after I’ve done the proper analysis.
Lorenzo: It’s only a TV. It’s not like it’s a house or even a car.
Katia: I know, but I’m the one who has to live with the decision. I’ll look at it every day, and if I don’t make the right decision, it’ll haunt me for years.
Lorenzo: You know what I think?
Lorenzo: I think you’re crippled by indecision, and you’re stalling. The sooner you make a decision and buy a new TV, the better.
Katia: Hey, what are you doing? Where are you taking me?
Lorenzo: We’re going to the electronics store this minute, and you’re buying a TV – today!
Katia: What if I regret my decision?
Lorenzo: Then I’ll buy you a new one.
Katia: Fine, but I’m holding you to that!
