Data Can Be Fluid

| Right | January 26, 2015

(I work at an office supply store that also sells technology. I work in the supplies department, and get a call:)

Me: “Office supplies, how can I help you?”

Customer: “I was wondering, do you have hard drive fluid?”

Me: “…hard drive fluid? That’s… not a thing.”

Customer: “Yes, it is! Do you have any?!”

Me: “Let me transfer you to the technology department. They’ll be able to assist you.”

(I transfer him to a coworker who comes to talk to me after.)

Coworker: “Hard drive fluid?”

Me: “Yeah, I have no idea.”

Coworker: “You know that was your boyfriend, right?”

Me: “No…”

(That was not the first, or last, time my boyfriend called to prank the store, where he previously worked, although he never tried it on me again.)
