"I don't want to let my mom know I buy new mouse again," said the customer.

The product in question? A S$239 Logitech gaming mouse.

Discreet packaging

The customer had sent a message to Endless Passion, a gaming store in Singapore, asking if it would be possible for the mouse to be wrapped in "simple" packaging.

A series of screenshots of the conversation with the customer was shared to their Facebook page in a now-viral post.
