(I worked in a small electronic retail store, we sold computers and a lot of random pieces and parts to make/repair electronics.  This customer walked in holding a computer part in his hands.)

Customer: I’m looking for a hard drive for a computer.

Me: Internal or external?

Customer: It needs to go inside the computer.

Me: We don’t sell internal computer parts.

Customer: Can you show me what one looks like?

Me: We don’t have any internal hard drives, sir.

(Customer looks genuinely confused)

Customer: What is it I have here then? Isn’t this a hard drive?

Me: No, that’s a CD-RW drive. It plays and writes CDs on your computer.
