Dumbass #90 - Submitted on 02-04-2002 by Slappy Hooper
I am manager of a small computer store in Cedar Rapids, Ia. I Have seen and heard many, many stupid things, but the one that still gets me was this situation.

(phone rings)
Coworker: "Computer ******, how can I help you?"
lady: Yes, my modem got struck by lightning, how much does it cost to repair it?
Coworker: Ma'am, you don't repair modems once they're damaged, you have to replace them
lady: oh, well how much for a replacement modem?
Coworker: they run about twenty five to fifty dollars depending on the model.
lady: oh, that's all? well what should I do with my old computer?
coworker: throw it out. It can't be repaired.
Lady: Ok, I'll throw it out and stop in later on today.
TIME PASSES
the lady walked into our store a few hours later, and.....
lady: Hi! I'm the one that called you about a new modem a few hours ago. Where are they?
Coworker: They are right over here(shows her modems)
Lady: these aren't modems!!!
coworker: yes they are.
lady: no, no, no! those are modems over there!(points to some display computers)
coworker: Ma'am, those are computer systems. When you called, you asked me about replacing a modem.
Lady: OH NO(runs out of store)

The lady ran out of the store, but came back in a few hours to bring her computer in for repair.
She ran out so fast the first time, because she had thrown her computer out, and that day happened to be trash collection day.

I see a huge amount of people who think this though
Modem=Computer tower
hard drive=Computer tower
processor=Computer tower(for instance "I have a pentium tower" who makes it? "Pentium!" no, what brand. who is the manufacturer? "I told you, Pentium!"
Bottom line, wise up people!
