The masters of satire over at the Onion have done it again, release a report about an Amish teen spending every single day of his Rumspringa (a tradition of allowing Amish teens to explore the outside world) at a local Apple store.
From The Onion:
“This place is amazing! Everyone here is super-friendly, and they let me try out all these neat computers and phones and stuff without pressuring me to buy anything,” said Stotzfus, who reportedly can be seen at the store’s entrance at sunrise each morning, waiting for the doors to open. “I love the interactive displays and presentations, of course, but probably my favorite thing to do here is just stand back and take in the atmosphere of the whole place. I had no idea the modern world was so shiny.”
It’s an amusing thought to imagine how an Amish person might interpret something like the Apple Store on a break from traditional practices, and the amusing way that the Onion portrays this is classic.
