    When Grave Concerns Are Warranted

    | Canada | Technology, Top

    (After talking to an elderly customer about a computer and all its benefits, I try to talk to him about our in-store warranty.)

    Me: “So are you interested in purchasing this computer and having it protected for three years through us?”

    Customer: “I would be dead by then.”

    Me: “Then it would be a lifetime warranty.”

    Customer: *laughs*

    May Also Cancel Brain Waves

    | St. Cloud, MN, USA | Musical Mayhem

    (I am helping a customer looking at headphones. He reads one of the tags out loud.)

    Customer: “Black noise canceling headphones. There’s such a thing as black noise?”

    Me: “Sir, those are the color of the headphones.”

    Customer: “Oh, because I’ve heard of that white noise, are you sure it doesn’t just cancel the black noise?”

    Funds Are Not The Only Thing Lacking Here

    | Chicago, IL, USA | At The Checkout

    Me: “So, your total comes to $47.63.”

    (The customer swipes their card.)

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but it seems your card was declined.”

    Customer: “Declined? Why?”

    Me: “It says here because of ‘insufficient funds’.”

    Customer: “But what does that even mean?”

    Cooking In High Definition

    | Adelaide, Australia |

    Customer: “I will take one of these.” *points to a small white microwave oven*

    Me: “Certainly, sir. Come right this way.”

    (The customer goes to the checkout counter and pays for goods.)

    Customer: “So, will I need an antenna for this?”

    Brain On Recess

    | Saskatchewan, Canada |

    (I am helping a customer apply for financing to purchase some items.)

    Me: “Oh, I’m sorry. Your application was denied.”

    Customer: “Wow. I really didn’t expect that.”

    Me: “Well, they’re a lot stricter with who they give credit to because of the recession.”

    Customer: “The what?”

    Me: “The recession.”

    (Customer looks very confused.)

    Me: “Hundreds of people foreclosed on their houses. The government had to pay billions of dollars to bail out the banks.”

    Customer: *shrugging shoulders* “Hmm. Well, I must have missed that!”
