    Me: "Excuse me??"  
    Customer: "You know, a tittybyte, TB"

    DM: "CTEC, we have a customer opportunity at returns. Go save it."

    Customer: where's that rikkou thing?
    Me: what is it that you're looking for the product to do?
    Customer: I want to get rid of cable and get that rikky thing.
    Me: do you mean Roku?
    Customer: yeah that's it.
    Me: right, so all you have to do is connect this to your internet provider and/or your wireless router. Then you subscribe to apps like Hulu or Netflix and you're all set.
    Customer: (blank look on face) you mean I still have to pay for internet AND a service?
    Me: (facepalm)

    Customer: The Linksystem rooter that I have stopped working.
    Salesman: Ok uh, we have new routers over here. The top of the line is the new ASUS AC 1900 Router.
    Customer: No no I need a rooter.
    Salesman: Yes, this is a router. It's pronounced router.
    Customer: Oh.
    Salesman: How big is your house?
    Customer: Pretty big. About 3,000 sq ft. Will this $29 rooter cover the whole thing? I have a 2 acre lot outside of town.
    Salesman: Actually no router will cover that amount of space. What we can do though is set you up with-
    Customer: My old rooter didn't cover much but I could use it on one side of the house. What the heck have they been doing the last few years? I thought by now that rooters would be able to cover a whole neighborhood.
    Salesman: There have been range improvements but there have been much larger improvements in speed. The government regulates what bands that these companies can use and how much electrical power is used to generate the signals that the routers use. This router is-
    Customer: Damn Obama!

    Like I said...Fry's does seem to attract a "less than sophisticated" clientele (perhaps related to the quality of their employees?)

    When I need a good laugh, or have had a week of cat herding or dealing with the "inmates running the asylum", I come here. It helps me keep my perspective and realize there are worse places to work. And sometimes to help tell the truth about Fry's (having been part of the team that handled their insurance/risk management)
