    | Knoxville, TN, USA | Extra Stupid

    (The customer is requesting that I order her some clothing that our store currently does not have in stock to be delivered to her home address.)

    Me: “…and what is your home address?”

    Customer: “Why do you need that?”

    Me: “So that the clothes can be delivered to the correct address.”

    Customer: “How do the clothes get to me from the computer?”

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, I don’t quite understand what you are asking.”

    Customer: “I mean, all you have told the computer is my information. How do the clothes get from the computer to me?”

    Me: “Well, the information goes to our warehouse and they will send the clothes to your address from there.”

    Customer: “So the clothes don’t come from the computer?”

    Me: “You mean directly from this computer?”

    Customer: “Yes, of course. How do I get the clothes from the computer?”

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, it doesn’t work like that. We can’t store merchandise in our computers.”

    Customer: “Well, your systems are too outdated! I will just go buy them from my home computer so I don’t have to wait for the warehouse to send me my order in the mail!”
