    Candid Camera, Candid Answer, Part 2

    | Indianapolis, IN, USA | Bizarre, Technology, Uncategorized

    Me: “Hi, how may I help you?”

    Customer: “I’d like to swap the hard drive from this old laptop into my new one.”

    Me: “Okay, not a problem.”

    (I ring her up and start work on switching the hard drives. I notice on the old laptop there is a band-aid over the webcam. After finishing work on it, the lady grabs the band-aid from the old computer and puts it over the web cam on the new one.)

    Customer: “I put that there so they can’t watch me.”

    The Truth Is A Bitter Pill To Swallow

    | Vancouver Island, BC, Canada | Health & Body, Uncategorized

    Customer: “Why isn’t my prescription ready yet?”

    Me: “We’re trying to get in contact with your doctor because of a problem with the prescription. You’re profile says you’re allergic to penicillin. Is that correct?”

    Customer: “Oh yeah, that stuff is real bad for me!”

    Me: “The medication your doctor prescribed has penicillin in it, so we’re trying to get a hold of him to find out what he wants you to take.”

    Customer: “Oh, well, he wants me to take the penicillin. That’s what he wrote down, right?”

    Me: “Yes, but you said you were allergic to it.”

    Customer: “But he’s a doctor, so he knows what’s best. If that’s what he wrote, then just give me that.”

    Me: “Well, we’ll check with him first to make sure that it’s safe for you.”

    Customer: “Of course it’s safe for me or the doctor wouldn’t have prescribed it! He probably just cured my allergies. Check my old prescriptions; I bet he prescribed me something to cure my allergy!”
