Wave Your Warranty Goodbye

| Right | July 13, 2017

(Recently my store has been having a sale on the original iPad mini in order to liquidate the remaining stock for the newer iPads.)

Me: “Hi, ma’am, how may I help you?”

Customer: “Hello, yes, I’d like to buy one of your iPad Minis in black, please.”

Me: “No problem, ma’am, please wait at the cash register and I’ll bring it right out to you.”

(I go out the back and grab the iPad and bring it to the register to ring it up for her.)

Customer: “Now, I’m just making sure I’ve got this right. iWave works on this iPad, right?”

(iWave is a hoax that has been going around the Internet as of late, about being able to charge your Apple products in the microwave, but just to make sure I ask to find out what she meant.)

Me: “I don’t quite understand. iWave, what’s that?”

Customer: “Well, my son had the iPad 2 but when he used iWave and placed it in the microwave it just caught fire instead of charging. So I want to make sure this model will work with iWave.”

Me: “I don’t think any Apple product is designed to do that, ma’am. Where did your son find out about this? It sounds like something from a hoax website.”

Customer: “Facebook…”

(She ended up buying the iPad and leaving nervously. Unfortunately she came back into the store a week later to return the fried mini as her son tried ‘charging’ it again. Sadly, microwaving isn’t included in the warranty.)
