I was the idiot customer … but not by my choice. Back when computers used primarily 3.5″ floppy disks, I had a handful of them that went bad. My (ex-) mother-in-law told me that the time that Office Depot had a policy that allowed you to bring in your old, bad floppy disks and they would replace them! According to her, it didn’t matter the make, condition, or if they worked still.

I was so embarrassed to hand a box of 100 disgusting, stained, old floppy disks expecting to trade out for a brand new box of disks. I was so angry for falling for that and embarrassed when the customer rep gave me this most baffling look.

I laugh about it now.
