(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.”

(I work at a place that does repairs for Sony computers, stereos, cameras and the like. Hence, our store has the word ‘Sony’ in the title.)

Me: “Good morning, [company name]. How can I help you?”

Customer: “Is that Sony Music?”

Me: “No, sorry, this is Sony Repairs.”

Customer: “I’m trying to get through to Simon Cowell. He works with Susan Boyle.”

Me: “No, sorry. We repair Sony laptops.”

Customer: “So, you’re not Sony Music. Repairs are no good. Thanks.”

(A customer walks up to the counter with a desktop and sets it down.)
 
Customer: “Excuse me, are you Catholic?”
 
Me: “No.”
 
Customer: “Well, I think it’s possessed and it needs an exorcism. Do you have any Catholic workers?”
 
Me: “I don’t think so. Maybe I can take a look at it?”
 
Customer: “No! You have to be Catholic!” *takes his desktop and leaves*
