Unable To Continue This Disc-ussion

| Orem, UT, USA | Extra Stupid, Technology

Customer: “I’m booting from your CD but it’s not working.”

(I find out they’re running an older version and ask them to email us a picture of the CD or box so we can supply the most recent download links.)

Customer: “I can’t take a picture. I don’t have that. I bought it five or six weeks ago.”

Me: “You don’t have the CD?”

Customer: “No. I only have a quick start guide that came in the box.”

Me: “If you don’t have the CD, how are you booting from the CD?”

Customer: “Oh, yeah, that’s what’s in my computer. I guess that’s the CD.”

Not-So-Smart Phone, Part 13

, | Boston, MA, USA | Extra Stupid, Technology

(I’m a manager for a national clothing retailer outside of Boston and our store is running a promotion where customers can get coupons via text message.)

Me: “How can I help you?”

Customer: “Yes, how do I get a coupon?”

Me: “You send a text message to this number **** and we will send you the coupon back.”

Customer: “So, do I need a cell phone in order to receive text message coupons from you?”

(Skipping a beat to see if she is serious.)

Me: “Yes. Yes, you do need a cell phone to receive text messages.”

Customer: *looking confused* “Oh.” *she walks away*

My Carrot Top Complaint

| Savannah, GA, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Hotels & Lodging

(I’m working as a server, checking in on guests who have already received their meal.)

Me: “Hey, how is everything?”

Customer: “Oh, yes, everything was good. Except…” *she points to an orange wedge in her fruit cup* “I do not like this carrot piece.”

Me: “Carrot? You mean orange?”

Customer: “Yes, it is orange! But it is still not a very good carrot!”

Me: “…I can’t argue that, ma’am.”
