Silly, Dumb, Take A Pick

, , , , | Right | January 31, 2020

(I’m working returns at a popular electronics store. An older lady comes into line and I go to help her.)

Me: “What’s going on with it?”

Customer: “Well, this mouse—” *pulls out a mouse* “—didn’t come with that… end that goes in the computer… The, uh… USP… USB!”

(I look over the wireless mouse and note that the batteries are still in the plastic. As the customer looks for her receipt, I open the battery compartment and pull out the wireless dongle.)

Me: “Ma’am?”

(The customer stops dead and turns dark.)

Customer: “Oh, darn, now you just made me feel silly. It didn’t show that in the booklet, though!”

(I take the booklet and show here where it says to open the battery compartment and remove the wireless dongle.)

Customer: “And now you made me feel dumb… Well, thanks, hun. Have a nice day.”

(She left and I kept grinning about that one for a while.)
