    An Electrifying Confection

    | Colorado Springs, CO, USA | Technology

    (This happens while I’m setting up a new prepaid phone with a cute little lady.)

    Me: “Alright, ma’am. Go ahead and press the phone’s power button and let me know when it has powered up.”

    Customer: “The power? What is power?”

    Me: “It’s the button you normally hang calls up with. Looks like a little red telephone.”

    Customer: “Ah, I see!”

    (A few minutes pass in silence.)

    Me: “Ma’am, are you having trouble turning the phone on?”

    Customer: “Yes. It doesn’t work. There’s no light.”

    Me: “I’m sorry. Check and make sure the battery is pushed in all the way on the back.”

    Customer: “Battery? What battery?”

    Me: “It came with the phone, in the package. It’s small, black, and has 3 little metal contacts on one end. You need to put it inside the back part of your phone.”

    Customer: “I don’t see a battery. There isn’t one in the phone, and there isn’t one in the package, either.”

    Me: “You don’t see it? It should have been packaged in a separate little baggie–”

    Customer: “OH! That! That’s in my candy dish!”

    Me: “Your candy dish?”

    Customer: “Yeah! I saw it on table and thought it was a piece of chocolate!”
