Rage Against The Machine, Part 6

, , , , | Right | October 27, 2017

(I work in the electronics department for an office supply chain. Some of our displays for copiers and printers are fake, but customers don’t realize it sometimes.)

Customer: “Hello, I need someone to show me how to change the toner on this copy machine.”

Me: “I apologize, ma’am, but that’s a fake display. I can describe the process but I won’t be able to show you on this model.”

Customer: *becoming irate* “No, I need you to show me on this machine!”

Me: “Like I said, unfortunately this machine is just a plastic display. I can’t open the part that holds the toner.”

Customer: “Then you need to find me someone who can! You don’t know anything!”

(I walk away to find a manager to handle the situation. After several minutes of helping her, she finally leaves.)

Me: “So, did she ask you to show her where the toner went?”

Manager: “I picked up the copier off the shelf and shook it to show her it was fake. I think she figured it out.”
