Not Everyone Has A Background In Computing

, , , , | Right | January 15, 2018

(I work in a computer store. It is very common for customers, particularly older ones, to be baffled by our technology, and I often find myself explaining the most basic of basics to uncomprehending tech newbies. One afternoon, I get a call from a kindly-sounding gentleman who I can tell is going to need some special assistance.)

Me: “Hello, [Business]. How can I help you?”

Customer: “Hi! You sell used monitors there, right?”

Me: “Yes, we do! We have about thirty in the store right now, prices ranging from $79 to $225.”

Customer: “Excellent! What background colours do you have?”

(It took me five minutes to explain to him that the background on a computer monitor was changeable, like his TV set at home, and not preset by the factory.)
