“A round of applause to the customer”

They had ONE of the new retina display MBP’s in stock — and after that, I had to make it mine. But, here’s another unreal thing — as I was leaving, someone announced, “We have just sold the very first of the new MacBook Pros! A round of applause to the customer giving it a new home!” The store employees…some lined by the door…started clapping as I walked out! (Some other customers did, too, wondering what the hell was happening.)
