    Yeah that.

    Not raging that he didn't know. I told him what it was, that it was an adapter. I explained that I needed a Displayport to HDMI/DVI/VGA adapter, not a wire. After I figured he was rambling on I kindly told him Thanks and ended the conversation. :D

    Customer came in today asking about how much it would cost to switch her iPhone to a Samsung Galaxy S4. She said "too many people are starting to get iPhones." That's the definition of a hipster.

    I would have followed that up with "So...why is that a bad thing?". =D

    Guy says he's looking for the newest version of Windows.

    Me: Ok, that's Windows 8. We have that over here.
    Him: My work computer has 7.
    Me: The newest version is 8.

    I show him the Windows 8.

    Him: I just need Word, Excel, and Powerpoint.
    Me: That's Microsoft Office.........

    Lady calls and asks if we have HP all-in-one printers.

    Me: "Yes."
    Her: "And they'll work on any computer?"
    Me: (just to make sure she didn't have some Google Chromebook or Linux thing) "Yes, they work on Windows XP through 8."
    Her: "What does XP mean?"

    Guy comes to me, pulls out a remote and starts messing with it. It's obvious he was looking at me, but he doesn't say a word.
    "Do you need some help?"
    No answer. He continues to mess with the remote for about 30 seconds. He finally takes the battery compartment off, pulls out the button battery, and places it on the counter.
    "You want a replacement battery?"
    "Yeah."

    That's all I got from him. I had to take him to the battery area.

    Customer was looking for a external blu-ray drive for their iShit computer. We have the Apple SuperDrive, which is a DVD player/burner. The Apple rep told him that would increase the quality of his DVD and give it the resolution of a blurry.

    And our reps keep telling every customer that the MacBook laptops have the fastest processor and highest resolution screen of any computer on the market today.

    Appropriate retort: "Then why'd you eat it all?" or "your empty plate says otherwise". :D

    Guy comes in yesterday looking for Killzone Shadow Fall for PS3, which is a PS4 exclusive. I tell him I believe it's a PS4 exclusive. He says he was in Gamestop and they had them, but he wanted to buy from us and asked me to look in the back. (Even though we don't keep games in the warehouse). I looked it up on Google and found it really is a PS4 exclusive. After I told him that he said he was just going to go outside and buy it at Gamestop because they had 50 in stock.

    A lady told me this last week, but I get it constantly.

    People come in to buy an iPad or laptop for their 5 year old child with the excuse "My child is so good with computers so I'm buying them their own so they can keep up with technology and not get behind."

    Really, your 5 year old is "good" with computers? Probably meant "They're better than me with computers" Ain't no 5 year old good with computers.

    Lady saw a 51" TV. She told me "Oh that's a good price. How big is 51"?"

    I so badly wanted to say "....it's 51""
