Not Being A Pawn In His Game

| Halifax, NS, Canada | Liars & Scammers, Technology

(A customer with a thick accent comes in and places a cell-phone on the counter, which immediately begins leaking water.)

Customer: “I want new phone.”

Me: “Oh?”

Customer: “This one not working.”

Me: “Why is it wet?”

Customer: “I don’t know.”

Me: “You don’t know?”

Customer: “May have been dropped in toilet.”

Me: “The warranty doesn’t cover water damage.”

Customer: “I want new phone. This one not working.”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir. I can’t replace your phone. If you look at the warranty details we gave you when you bought it, you’ll see that.”

Customer: “I have large friend. Knows kickboxing!”

Me: “Are you threatening me?”

Customer: “No, no! I no threaten!”

Me: “Well, I have a friend who plays chess. I don’t see how either is relevant to the conversation.”

(The customer grabs his phone and storms out.)
