(I work at a large electronics dealership, and one day I saw a couple in their early-forties checking out our PS4 display)

Me: Hello, folks! Checking out the PS4, huh?

Man: Yeah I want to get one for my son today, so if you could grab this and bring it over to the register, that’d be great.

Me: I’m sorry sir, but the PS4 doesn’t get released until November 15th, and even then, we sold out of pre-orders in May.

Man: What? That’s ridiculous! You have five available right here!

(The customer then points to the various empty display boxes with the PS4 logo on them)

Man: AND WHY IS THE CONSOLE SO F****** EXPENSIVE!! $1100 FOR THIS S***?!

(I was confused, but I found out that he thought the price tag for the TV that was displaying the PS4 demo as actually the price for the PS4)

Me: I’m sorry for the mix-up sir, but that price is for the display TV. The PS4 costs $399 without tax, but it still doesn’t get released until November 15th. I really wish I could help you out there, but there’s really nothing I can do.

Man: DO YOU THINK I’M AN IDIOT?! I CAN SEE ALL THE PS4’S ON DISPLAY HERE! ARE YOU TRYING TO CHEAT ME OUT OF MY MONEY?! I’LL CALL THE F****** COPS ON YOU AND GET YOU FIRED!

Me: Well, I’m sorry to hear that you think I’m trying to cheat you. I could sell you one of these empty boxes for $399, but I don’t think you’d be very happy with it.

(It was then that I picked up on of the display boxes and tossed it to a co-worker who overheard the conversation. They caught it and and unfolded it, revealing nothing inside.)

Me: Now is there anything else I can help you folks out with today?

(The couple then started to leave without saying a word, with the man flipping me off on his way out. My supervisor saw the whole thing and gave me a high-five and complimented me on keeping a level head.)
