I work at a small computer store in Eastern Europe.
Today a client came there. A few days ago he had bought a second hard disk to his computer and told me it didn't work. I asked him about the jumpers, he said he knew everything about that and it wasn't the case. Then I proceeded to ask about partitions and formatting and he had never heard of it. I gave him short instructions and he seemed to understand everything. Then he opened his mouth and said: "But I had a second hard disk before and it worked fine. Therefore you sold me a broken hard disk." I told him everything over at least three times when he was ready to go try that "formatting" thing I suggested.
And then, just when he was about to leave, he said he repairs computers for living.
