Wireless, Clueless, Hopeless, Part 24

| Jacksonville, FL, USA | Extra Stupid, Technology

(A customer walks in with a PSP he purchased recently from our store.)

Customer: “My PSP won’t connect to the Internet. Keeps giving me an error.”

Me: “Huh, weird. You have a good connection to your wifi right?”

Customer: “Wifi?”

Me: “Yeah, your wireless Internet. What’s the signal strength when you try to connect?”

(Customer looks at me like I’m from Mars.)

Me: “You do have Internet at home right?”

Customer: “No.”

Me: “Well, you need to have the Internet at home in order to be able to use the Internet.”

Customer: “I just thought the Internet came with the PSP when I bought it.”

They Lost The Game

| Canada | Extra Stupid, Technology

(Customer comes up to the counter with a Nintendo Amiibo figure of Sonic.)

Customer: “Hi, do you know which games this figure is compatible with?”

Me: *pulls up a list* “It works with Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS, Super Mario Maker, and Mario Kart 8.”

Customer: “What about Sonic Generations?”

Me: “Sorry, that game is on the Xbox 360; Amiibo figures only work on the Nintendo WiiU and New 3DS.”

Customer: “Well, I have a portable NFC reader.”

Me: “Again, that only works on the 3DS or 2DS.”

Customer: “I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t work on my Xbox 360.”

Me: “The Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii U/3DS are made by totally different companies.”

Customer: “But they’re both video game consoles.”

Me: *takes a deep breath* “Sir, the Xbox 360 is made by Microsoft and the Wii U and 3DS are both made by Nintendo. Microsoft and Nintendo don’t work together on game consoles and the two consoles don’t even play the same games.”

Customer: “But I’ve seen Sonic on both consoles.”

Me: “Yes, but Sonic Generations has never been on a Nintendo console, let alone the WiiU or 3DS. Even if it was, there’s no guarantee the Sonic amiibo would work with it.”

(Customer has blank stare.)

Customer: “Wait, what if I put the Sonic Generations disc in a Wii U?”

Me: “Nothing would happen.”

Customer: “Oh.” *walks away*

Me: “Next, please.”

(Another customer comes up to the counter with a copy of ‘Fallout 4’ for the Xbox One.)

Other Customer: “Does this work on mobile?”

Me: “Sorry, I’m going on break…”

| ON, Canada | Bizarre, Crazy Requests

Me: “[Store], thanks for calling. How can I help you?”

Customer: “Hi, do you guys sell games?”

Me: “Yes, we do, sir, as well as consoles and accessories.”

Customer: “Woah, that’s so cool, man. Hey, do you guys have GTA: Vice City?”

Me: “Yes, we do, sir. We have both new and used copies.”

Customer: “Cool man. Is there somewhere I can meet you to pick this up?”

Me: “Our store is located at [Address]. You can just come here and get it, but we’re closing in half an hour.”

Customer: “No, no, man, ya gotta meet me somewhere halfway.”

Me: “Sir, I can’t leave the store with unpaid merchandise. Maybe it would be better if you just came here tomorrow; we open at 9:30.”

Customer: “Okay, okay, I got a spot we can meet. I’ll be at [some alley lane I’ve never heard of] in half an hour. Bring the game.” *click*
