Me: “[Business name] Computers. How can I help you?”

Customer: “I can’t get this internet program installed. Can I just have you guys do it?”

Me: “Sure. Just bring in your computer tower and we’ll take care of that for you.”

(About fifteen minutes later, the customer comes in the front door carrying his monitor.)

Me: “Can I help you bring in the rest of your computer, sir?”

Customer: “Rest of my computer? This is my computer.”

Me: “Yes, sir. That is just your monitor. It only displays what your computer tells it to. What we need is your tower. It looks like one of these.”

(I point to several other towers in the store.)

Customer: “Well, as long as I have this in here, can you remove some of the icons from the screen that I don’t use?”

(I am working on replacing a computer at a customer’s house. The customer’s mother walks in.)

Me: “Okay, I’m going to look at your video card now.”

Mother: “What are you doing?”

Me: “Looking at the video card.”

(I take off the case to the computer.)

Mother: “What are you doing?! You said you were looking at the video card!”

Me: “I have to take the case off to see it.”

Mother: “I don’t feel comfortable with someone your age working inside my son’s computer.”

Me: “Ma’am, I am a fully certified technician. I’ve built and sold 3 computers in the past week. I will not harm your computer.”

Mother: “I will just get my husband to do it, since he is more qualified.”

Me: “Well, that is fine. For my reference, what are his qualifications?”

Mother: “He fixes our internet when it goes down.”
