A Playbox-U

| CA, USA | Technology

(A customer walks in. She is an older woman, looking at some games.)

Customer: “Hello, I’m looking for a game for my grandson.”

Coworker: “Okay, follow me.”

(She eventually points out a game that’s available on two different consoles.)

Coworker: “Which console does your grandson play on?”

Customer: “He told me it was… ah…”

Coworker: “If you don’t—”

Customer: “It was a Playbox!”

Coworker: “Uh…”

Unable To Think Outside The XBox

| Manchester, England, UK | Extra Stupid, Technology

(I work in a video game store. However, being female, customers tend not to listen to what I say, despite the fact I know as much as my male coworkers.)

Customer: “Hi, do you have GTA 4 for Xbox?”

Me: “Sure.” *hands her an Xbox 360 copy*

Customer: “No, I mean for Xbox One?”

Me: “No, it hasn’t been released for the Xbox One, I’m afraid.”

Customer: “Oh, okay. If you don’t have it I’ll look online. Someone will be selling it, right?”

Me: “No, because it isn’t on the Xbox One. It doesn’t exist.”

Customer: “Oh, well. I’ll keep an eye out; someone will be selling it, I imagine.”

Me: *gives up*

Doesn’t Understand The Custom Part Of Customer, Part 7

| Houston, TX, USA | Extra Stupid, Technology

(I work at a video game store who allows customers to trade in games. I answer the phone.)

Me: “This is [Store]; how can I help you?”

Customer: “Yeah, I bought a copy of Grand Theft Auto V and it’s all scratched up and won’t work. Can I trade it in for a new one?”

Me: “Did you get the warranty? If not you can trade it in for something but we will mark it as defective.”

Customer: “No. I bought it at [Different Store]. I just wanted to trade it for another one.”

Me: “So you want a straight trade for another copy? Even though you bought it at [Different Store]?”

Customer: “Yeah. I need a new one since mine doesn’t work.”

Me: “Yeah… that’s not going to happen.”

Customer: “Really? Why not?”

Me: “Have a good night.” *hangs up and turns to my manager* “I think I have had my daily dose of stupid for the day…”
