    Blue Screen Flash Of Death

    | Mt. Laurel, NJ, USA |

    (Client, a postman, walks in with his older machine. He sets it down on the desk, I turn it on and dust comes out the back. He explains how slow it’s been and how much he hates Windows Millennium Edition.)

    Me: “We can fix that up for you, but with the cost of the upgrade to Windows XP, the memory to support it, etc, it might be wise just to purchase a new computer and transfer the data.”

    Him: “Nah, that’s alright. I like this one.”

    (I go around the desk to fetch his paper work. He somehow finds a paper clip and decides to remove the dust on the back of his power supply fan with it. Shortly thereafter, a blue flash comes out the back, he jumps a bit, and the computer turns off.)

    Him: “Yanno what, I’ll just get that data backup.”

    Me: “One moment, please…”

    (Every customer in line and all of my employees cried laughing. Poor guy.)
