Me: “Thanks for calling [store], how may I help you?”

Customer: “Hello. I have a console that can connect to the internet and every time I try to connect it asks for a password. It didn’t used to do that. Is there any way I can create a password for it?”

Me: “That’s odd. Did you get a new router for your internet connection?”

Customer: “A what?”

Me: “Do you have wireless internet in your house?”

Customer: “I don’t have internet.”

Me: “Sir, you are connecting to your neighbor’s internet. They didn’t like it so they put a password on their network so that you can’t connect to it.”

Customer: “So can I set up a password and connect to it?”

One Man’s Trash Is Another Man’s Pleasure

| Colorado Springs, CO, USA | Uncategorized

(A few years ago, a particular game went through a scandal for having hidden pornographic content.)

Customer: “Hi, I’d like to trade in this game.”

Me: “Sorry, sir, I can’t take this game.”

Customer: “Why not?”

Me: “Because it’s undergoing a rating change. We’ve sent all of our existing copies back to the company.”

Customer: “Well, that’s dumb. What’s it being changed to?”

Me: “AO, or Adults Only.”

Customer: “Woah. Why?”

Me: “Because there’s a pornographic mini-game hidden in the coding.”

Customer: “So, you’re telling me there’s porn in my game?”

Me: “Yes, sir.”

(Suddenly, another customer behind him speaks up.)

Another customer “If you don’t want it, can I have it?”

What A Bad Decision Looks Like

| Tyler, TX, USA | Uncategorized

(A woman comes into our store with her three children, one 5-6 years old, one toddler, and another still in a stroller. The eldest children immediately grab Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas off the shelves and beseech their mother.)

Children: “Mommy, Mommy! Can we have this one?”

Customer: “Sure, honey.”

Me: “Ma’am, that’s not a game for children.”

Customer: “What do you mean?”

Me: “Well, it’s rated Mature. That means it has lots of violence, and I also know it’s got drugs and sexual themes. It’s really meant for adults only.”

Customer: *turning back to her boys* “Are you SURE this is the one you want?”

Children: *eyes now bulging with excitement after they overheard my description* “YES! YES!”

Customer: “Okay, then.”
