    Not-So-Smart Phone, Part 11

    | AL, USA | Extra Stupid, Language & Words, Technology

    Customer: *storms into the store, tosses his phone at me* “D*** thing doesn’t work!”

    Me: “Oh, I’m sorry, sir.” *picks phone up* “What seems to be wrong with it?”

    Customer: “It’s broken. Doesn’t work.”

    Me: “Well, I understand that, sir, but what is or isn’t it doing?”

    Customer: “It won’t let me log into my email. It’s broken. Fix it or get me another one.”

    Me: “Well, sir… Is it possible you just put in the wrong password?”

    Customer: “No. No, that ISN’T possible. I put in the password the way I always do.”

    Me: “Well, let’s do this then, sir.” *I pull out my own phone* “I know my phone works. I’ll log out of my email on here, and you can try logging into it on mine.”

    (The customer tries to log in on my phone, and it doesn’t work.)

    Me: *smiles* “Now then, sir, either you just broke my phone, in which case I’ll need you to replace it, or you just forgot your email, and I can help you reset your password.”

    Customer: *grumbling* “Let’s reset the d*** password, then.”
