Putting The Terror Into Terabytes

| Right | February 23, 2015

(A customer walks in and grabs a 3 GB USB stick from the rack and brings it to the counter.)

Me: “Afternoon, sir.”

Customer: “Yes, hello. Can you help me? What can I do with this?”

Me: “Umm… you can store files on this device using a computer.”

Customer: “Files?”

Me: “Yeah, pictures, text, movies, music. Anything.”

Customer: “And Google-ing?”

Me: “If you mean the Internet, no. You’ll need a bigger USB stick.”

(The customer grabs a 32 GB stick.)

Me: “Eh. Right, that was sarcastic. You’ll need millions and millions of USB sticks for that.”

Customer: “There are only 20 on the rack.”

Me: “What I’m trying to say is that it is impossible to copy the Internet to a USB stick.”

Customer: “Oh. What about a floppy?”

Me: “Those are outdated and store even less than a USB stick.”

Customer: “But can I store a ‘Internet’ on it?”

Me: “No.”

Customer: “I want the manager.”

Me: “I am the manager.”

(The customer stormed off.)
