A bunch of time ago, I ordered a Withings scale which can connect to the internet. I’ve been largely happy with it, and when they released a new one a couple months ago, I had half a mind to get one, but it was conveniently never included in their (rather frequent) promotions, and even I thought that €180 for a scale was a bit on the pricey side.
Until now; I got a 20% off coupon and decided to seal the deal. Except their fucking store didn’t work. Being a mature adult, I sent a respectful and to-the-point mail to their customer service:

I like the fact that you start of sarcastically and then end up just being a good oldfashioned grumpy arse. (y)
Always be yourself. Unless you can be an ass. Then always be an ass.
Are there any new features at all? Isn’t it just a facelift and a higher price tag?
They say it has something “cardio.” Haven’t really researched it, but it has a new name and higher price, so it must be better. Plus it’s €36 off.
Their web-site says it measures pulse wave velocity, which sounds very sciency and good. It also seems like it’s got rechargeable batteries built-in, so I don’t have to bother changing batteries every half a year or so, which is worth the price on its own.
I agree you handled that very mature. Especially the suggestion that this feature would be very agreeable with murderers. A child would never come up with this.
