    Shades Of Stupid

    | New Zealand | Extra Stupid

    (A customer comes in with a DVD player and several DVD movies.)

    Customer: “My DVD player is not working properly. I borrowed some DVDs from a friend, and some of them aren’t playing in color.”

    Me: “Which ones are you having the troubles with?”

    Customer: “These.” *points at a bunch of black and white movies*

    The Geek Shall Inherit The Earth

    | Sacramento, CA, USA |

    (I work at a well-known electronics store. I am standing by the entrance welcoming people and handing out ads. A woman comes rushing in.)

    Customer: “I need help! Where are your geeks?”

    Me: *trying not to laugh* “You can go over to the counter, just next to customer service. Someone there can help you.”

    (About 20 minutes later, I see the woman heading to the exit.)

    Me: “Did you get your problem straightened out?”

    Customer: “Oh, yes. Thank you so much! I was in need of your geekiness and now everything is okay!”

    My Head Megahertz

    , | Henderson, NV, USA | Technology, Top

    Customer: “I need a new laptop. I want one better than the one I have. I want to spend no more than 600 dollars.”

    (After finding out that he has a machine running Windows 98 with 512 MB of RAM and 60 GB of hard drive space, I provide him several different laptop choices within his price range. They have either 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM, running Windows 7.)

    Customer: “No, no, no! I said better! I have 512 memory, but you keep recommending only 3 and 4! Also, 7 is way lower than 98! Get me someone who knows what I mean by better!”

    And The Picture Becomes Clear

    , | Paris, France | Technology

    (The customer arrives very angry at my desk. He nervously holds a memory card in his hand.)

    Customer: “I want a new memory card. This one is really bad!”

    Me: “What troubles do you have with this one?”

    Customer: “It only makes blurry pictures!”

    Me: “Well, I guess the problem might be the camera, not the memory card.”

    Customer: “Oh, and do you have memory cards in black & white?”

    Me: “Or it could be the photographer…”

    Don’t Mess With Gamer Chicks

    | Massachusetts, USA | Top

    (A very busty, bubbly young woman comes in to buy a pre-owned copy of Resident Evil 4.)

    Woman: “My stupid ex-boyfriend took all my games when he moved out! He doesn’t even like Resident Evil!”

    Me: “Wow, that sucks.”

    Woman: “It’s fine. I hooked up with his brother. I don’t start s***, I end it. Mess with my games and it is ON.”

    Me: *laughing*

    (I ended up giving her a discount.)
