**No Maintenance Required**

The piano teacher was lending her piano and services  for the talentshow . During the second music act, pressing of the keys produced no sound. She paused for a moment, then started again. Nothing. Silence.

She had been told the piano was special. There was a bright red button behind its housing, that looked like a clown’s nose. “Just push it [the button] and any issue with the piano won’t be a concern. Guaranteed!” the peddler had told her. She got up from the bench, reached behind the housing and pushed the “nose”. The piano teacher quickly realized: she had purchased a defective product!
