(A customer comes in with a DVD player and several DVD movies.)

Customer: “My DVD player is not working properly. I borrowed some DVDs from a friend, and some of them aren’t playing in color.”

Me: “Which ones are you having the troubles with?”

Customer: “These.” *points at a bunch of black and white movies*

(I work at a well-known electronics store. I am standing by the entrance welcoming people and handing out ads. A woman comes rushing in.)

Customer: “I need help! Where are your geeks?”

Me: *trying not to laugh* “You can go over to the counter, just next to customer service. Someone there can help you.”

(About 20 minutes later, I see the woman heading to the exit.)

Me: “Did you get your problem straightened out?”

Customer: “Oh, yes. Thank you so much! I was in need of your geekiness and now everything is okay!”

Customer: “I need a new laptop. I want one better than the one I have. I want to spend no more than 600 dollars.”

(After finding out that he has a machine running Windows 98 with 512 MB of RAM and 60 GB of hard drive space, I provide him several different laptop choices within his price range. They have either 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM, running Windows 7.)

Customer: “No, no, no! I said better! I have 512 memory, but you keep recommending only 3 and 4! Also, 7 is way lower than 98! Get me someone who knows what I mean by better!”
