    Dimwitted thieves steal fake cell phones in Mexico

    An examination of the shop revealed the only items missing were hollow replica phones for display that are completely useless for making calls.

    That's awesome.

    I have loads of stories (worked in data tech support for a few years and now marketing), but I don't wanna lose my job over a simple internet post

    I personally love those whom call and and claim to use their phone for "bidness" and when I check their device profile said business phone is a Samsung M320 or a Rumor or some other POS teenage texting phone....really if you're that "bidness" related maybe you'd like to upgrade to a "bidness" type phone say maybe a Palm, BB, HTC Touch Pro, something that's over $0 purchase price???

    Just have to say some of us do use those in our business. The hospital I work at uses them for supervisors & charge nurses so they are the very cheapest phones cause they are there to simply be used as a phone only

    I had a guy call in to get help with installing bbdm. No problem we go through and he clicks run instead of save cuz he says its faster. Turns out it is and it takes about 15 minutes so we wait while he does this when it finishes he cant find it... i tell him to click around minimize things and see if he can find it because it should pop up with the winzip extractor. He cant find it, it didnt save,nothing. We go through 25 minutes of it saving and finally it is done. He closes out the window and guess whats there? The Run that we had already gone through waiting for him to click next. So we waited 25 minutes for nothing. I hate dumb people.

    I had an attorney ranting at me with a list of things that were wrong, basically EVERYTHING, according to him altho this is the first report to us and he ends it with:

    "...and this Blackberry keeps locking up and I have to pull the battery out to be able to do anything with it!"

    He pulls it out, looks at it and says: "See it's locked up again!"

    I look and it's the "Keypad is Locked - Press * [green button] to unlock" message.

    It took all my self-control to explain it to him without being sarcastic...
    Sad thing is, these people (lawyers) are running our country; is it any wonder our country is in its current state?

    Cust: (Looking at a loooong cust ser line) in a loud voice, so he know all can hear, says "I'm a doctor and I'm to important to wait in this line, I want you to personally handle this for me!"
    Me: I tell you what sir, if you speak to everyone in this line and they all agree that your time is more important than theirs, you can go ahead and go straight to the front of the line.
    Cust: Slinks to the back of the line, other customers actually applaude.

    Cust, returning about half an hour after I sold her a phone: You didn't give me a bag.
    Me: Excuse me?
    Cust: Where's my bag and receipt with the charger and all that? You didn't give it to me!
    Me: Yes Ma'am I did, this is a kiosk, feel free to look around, there is no bag here.
    Coworker: I saw him give you the bag miss, maybe you lost it?
    Cust: You're a bunch of crooks! Stomps off.
    Cust: Now irate, returning after 20 mins or so: I want my bag! I want my bag! (screaming at the top of her lungs)
    An evil, terrible impulse starts to build inside me, as I see the ultimate revenge upon this horrible creature who had wasted a good portion of my day during her purchase already. I begin to chant in my head "Please ask to return the phone. Please ask to return the phone".
    Cust: (now screaming, people are gathering and mall security is coming down the corridor) I want to return this phone!
    Me, struggling to maintain a straight face: I'm sorry ma'am you can't return it.
    Cust: Why not?
    Me: Because you don't have the box or receipt.
    Two things happen at this point: The cust completely melts down, screaming, alternately pulling her hair and throwing collateral (brochures), beating the kiosk and generally just loosing it altogether. I also hear a loud thump behind me, which upon closer inspection was my co-worker falling out of his chair onto the floor in an uncontrollable fit of laughter, the MUWAHAHAHAHAH kind. Mall security escorts the cust from the premises.
    Later, an employee for Victoria's Secret brings us the bag, which she had left in their store, which we eventually get back to her.

    Cust: I lost/dropped in water/ran over my phone.
    Me: Unfortunately you're not eligible for upgrade, so you'll need to pay full retail for a replacement handset.
    Cust: I'm not paying that much for a phone!
    Me: Sorry, that's your only option, as you don't have the insurance.
    Cust: You're costing me (insert ridiculous amount of money here, I've heard it all) every hour I don't have a phone!
    Me: Then it shouldn't be that much of a problem to pay $200.00 for a phone, right? I mean if you are losing $xxxx.xx per hour, right?
    Each of these situations is almost too good to be true.

    A few years ago, I was on my way back from court and stopped at Circuit City to look at some computer monitors. I'd left my jacket in my car, but was still wearing a necktie. A customer walked up to me and said,

    "Hey, I bought this g***amn thing here and..."

    "Excuse me," I replied, "That's no way to address someone. If you want to speak to me, you can do it politely," and I turned back to the item I was looking at.

    "I'm talking to you!" he said. "Look at me!"

    "I really don't want to hear anything you have to say if you can't be civil, let alone look at you."

    By this time, several employees, all of whom were wearing the official store uniform of a red polo shirt and name tag clearly showing they worked there, were watching from a distance.

    "HEY, I'M TALKING TO YOU."

    I turned and said, "Yes, you are... and I wish you would stop. If you'd like to start over, by politely saying 'Excuse me, may I speak to you for a moment,' then I'll consider having a conversation. Otherwise, please get away from me right now."

    "THAT DOES IT! I'M FINDING THE MANAGER, AND I'LL HAVE YOUR JOB!"

    "You can't have my job," I told him," because I'm self employed. You'd also have to graduate from law school and pass the bar exam. Frankly, because you couldn't figure out that employees wear polo shirts, and thought I worked here because I was wearing a dress shirt and tie, I wonder if you'd score a 120 on the law school admissions test, which is what they give you for putting your name on the answer sheet. I'm leaving now, but on my way out, I'm going to find the manager and tell him what a stupid, rude person you are, and tell him that if you complain about any of the kids who work here, it's your problem, not theirs."

    He was sputtering and his mouth was hanging open as I walked past him. On my way out, the guy from the car stereo department stopped me, handed me his business card, and said, "Anything you want... dealer cost!"
    This is the best post EVER, and I get a thrill every time I read it. Thank you!

    i love it when people start swearing at me when im trying to help them, cos we have a company policy that we shoudlnt serve people who treat us like that, so i just go `ok, ok` and then `next please` way i see it, if you cant respect yourself, then why should i

    also today i had a customer (very nice chap) ask me for (and i`l quote this word for word) `one of them gooseberry touch phone thingys` this was while pointing to the 3ft blackberry storm we`ve got as a display!!! we had a laugh about it and he walked away saying blackberry!!!

    We have a phonebook transfer machine at our store that we can sometimes do picture transfers on (as long as it isn't too many, because it takes a while). We get a lot of people leaning over the counter going, "Oh, don't do the pictures, I don't want you looking at them."

    "Erm... we can't actually see them when they're being transferred..."

    "Oh, ok... I just have some stuff on there, if you know what I mean..."

    *shudder* Creeeepy. Go ahead and have personal pictures on your phone, but we run a don't ask, don't tell policy when it comes to stuff like that. I won't ask, and you don't tell. Unless for some reason I ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO GO INTO YOUR PICTURES. Then PLEASE warn me. Please!! I don't want to be surprised by that when I'm trying to troubleshoot your memory card. ;_;

    not wireless, but I work for a state network, had an IT guy from a school complain that his t1 was slow. I asked how many computers he had running and he said "around 130 on slow days, up to 200 at peak." wtf? that gives each computer less than dial up!

    Ha yeah we have a lot of people like this, it gets bad when you have to move pictures to a memory card sometimes, not going to lie their are a lot of things out their that I really don't want to see, but I do like it when I get a heads up about things when doing it, it's suprizing how many people out their wont do it themself and would rather you do it but don't want you going threw their pictures but still want it done, but I agree with the picture transfer thing we have some people that come in and it takes an hour to do their pictures on the machine cuz they refuse to buy a memory card.

    Me: If you use our payment machine, you'll save yourself the 3 dollar service fee.

    Cust: What? That thing is a payment machine? You mean you stick your money in there?!

    Me: Yeah, the machine with the giant PAYMENT CENTER sign right above it, at about eye level.... It takes cash, checks, and debit or credit cards, just like the rest of the GIANT SIGN says...

    Stupidity knows no limits I guess. *Face Palm*
