a man with a high school drop out education goes to buy a coffee pot that can be set to automatically add in the perfect amount of cream and sugar every day. He goes to a department store and talks to a saleswomen who shows him the perfect machine. it cost 320 dollars. the man tells the women he cant afford it right now so she tells him about their credit plan. she says if u pay 30 dollars a month for a year u can take the coffee pot home right now. She shows him the contract and he asks her if he has to read it. she says no. the man buys the coffee pot. A few months later the man takes in a tenant to live with him. She asks about the coffee pot and he shows her the contract. She says do u know that u r paying 40 dollars to much for that coffee pot. the man says no i didnt understand the contract.
What makes this contract unconscionable?
1. the fact that the women told him he didnt need to read the contract
2. the fact that it was an adhesion contract
3. the fact that he couldnt afford it as proved by the fact he had to take on a tenant
4. it wasnt unconscionable
