Of Microphones And Microbrains

| Working | December 25, 2012

Worker: “Can I help you with anything?”

Me: “Yes, I’m looking for a microphone.”

Worker: “What?”

Me: “A microphone. You know, to record voice?”

Worker: “What’s that?”

Me: “A microphone! You plug it into the computer and talk and it records your voice.”

Worker: “Oh, you mean a micro-cassette!”

Me: “No, a microphone. For the computer.”

Worker: “I think it’s a micro-cassette you want. Follow me, please.”

(He starts walking away from the computer section, but I refuse to follow.)

Me: “I don’t think that’s what I want. I said a microphone. To record voice onto the computer.”

Worker: “Yes, a micro-cassette.”

Me: “No, I’m looking for a microphone!”

Worker: “Oh! A microphone!”

Me: “Yes.”

Worker: “I’m sorry. I don’t think we stock them.”

Me: “Why didn’t you just say so?!”

Worker: “You didn’t ask.”
