the lobotomy shopA Story by Priya
A receptionist at the lobotomy shop entertains an interested customer in the not too distant future.
Welcome to the lobotomy shop!
This is our boutique. Here you can rest while I show you a holographic presentation of our premium services. Oh, you've seen them already, Sir? How nice. Do you have any queries regarding anything we do here? I'll be glad to help.
Yes, Sir, and don't worry, that's a perfectly logical question. We at the lobotomy shop aim to help people experience their true selves. We aim to liberate you from all unneeded conscious interferences in everyday life. Why should you think about every single thing you do while your brain gives you its assessment automatically? Why should we think about the things we want to do? Why don't we disinhibit ourselves?
No Sir. I'm sorry, but I think you might have misjudged the situation. We do not allow your sub conscious to take you as a hostage. We merely allow it to control your activities.
Haha, yes Sir, I understand it seems similar to modern day governments. But governments, as always, never do any job well. We assure you we will eliminate all and any thoughts you might have. I believe we have more approximations with the media than the governments in that regard.
That is a most important question, Sir. We differ from the media in that we do not sell your mind to other people. We merely sell it to yourself. I know it sounds confusing, but believe me, your conscious thought- free self understands what I'm saying.
We offer many different services depending on your needs, Sir. The regular lobotomy removes just a part of your frontal lobe, ensuring that you lose any unwanted projections of your conscious self on your persona. The deluxe lobotomy removes part of your frontal lobe along with a part of your hypothalamus, ensuring you lose most of your unneeded personality, enjoying a refreshing sense of new found freedom. Our Lobotomy Grand TM, the pinnacle of all such technology available in the market removes all personality defining areas from your brain, ensuring your sub conscious is in total control. You will feel invincible.
Yes, all procedures are risk free. We even take a backup of your brain, should you ever reconsider your decision. Yes, ironical, considering that you'll not be able to think reasonably afterwards. But you will be pleased to know, Sir, that we have never had an unsatisfied customer thus far.
Yes, all versions are upgradable if you so want, Sir.
The Deluxe version? Very well, Sir. That will cost you two litres of water. May I inform you that we also offer a special subsidy on the Lobotomy Grand for committed customers? Oh, you are satisfied with the Deluxe? Very well, Sir.
No special instructions, Sir. You can fly home immediately after the procedure. When shall I book your appointment with one of our lobotomists? Yes, you can come tomorrow. Ok, please provide your tongue print to confirm your appointment tomorrow at 0400 hours. Thank You.
If you have any doubts regarding the procedure, you can ask our interning lobotomists at any time.
Thank you very much for doing your lobotomy with us, Sir. I assure you, our service is so good, you will lose your mind.
Have a nice day, Sir.
