A Phone That Rises To The Challenge

| NY, USA | Rude & Risque

Dummy Request

| Fort Collins, CO, USA |

(We have dummy displays set up of all the phones we sell.)

Me: “Hello sir, can I help you with a new cell phone today?”

Customer: “No. I’m just looking for a new battery for my phone.”

Me: “Sorry, but we don’t carry batteries for cell phones. You might try the battery store across the street.”

Customer: “How much to buy one of the displays?”

Me: “Well those are just dummy phones.”

Customer: “I know that. I just want to take the battery from it.”

Unlimited Texts, Limited Intelligence

| Baltimore, MD, USA | Family & Kids, Technology

(After purchasing a cell phone a few hours ago, a teenager and her mom return, saying they’re having difficulty.)

Me: “What seems to be the problem?”

Customer’s mom: “She’s having problems sending a text message to her dad.”

Customer: “Yeah, it keeps saying that it doesn’t recognize his phone or something.”

Me: “Oh, that’s odd. Here, show me.”

(The customer types a short message along with her dad’s number, and hits send. After a few moments, a message reads ‘Error: Your message was not sent. Address is not a recognized mobile device’.)

Me: “Oh…are you trying to text it to his home phone?”

Customer’s mom:“Yes! Why does that matter?”

Me: “Because only cell phones can receive text messages. It’s not going to work.”

Customer’s mom:“What? Since when? Well, she’d like a plan that can do that.”

Me: “I’m sorry ma’am, it’s not up to me. That’s just how phones work.”

Customer: “But it’s an unlimited texting plan!”

Customer: “Hello. I bought this phone from you and I accidentally got some orange juice on it.”

Me: “Okay, well if it didn’t get too much on it, it might be okay. Is it turning on?”
