Sounds Like He’ll Have A “Boom” Box On His Hands

, , , , | Right | October 24, 2021

I once had a guy come into the workshop I was in.

Guy: “I’m looking for batteries for my boom box.”

Me: “I’m sorry, but we don’t carry those.”

He refused to believe us. Eventually, he declared:

Guy: “I don’t have any more time to waste on you people being stupid!”

And he left.

Shortly after that, I noticed a basket that we kept on a workbench near the door, that was filled with loose, potentially undischarged capacitors, was missing.

I couldn’t prove he stole it, and the capacitor terminals didn’t line up with battery compartment terminals, but some of those capacitors were about the size and shape of C- and D-cell batteries.

To this day, I get a chuckle every time I think about what would happen to an electronic device if he’d managed to jury-rig a “fix” to make them fit.
