I currently work at the Geek Squad and often come into contact with people that don't have a clue(And its not just with computers). I recently got a call from an older woman and well it was pretty funny.

Me: Geek Squad this is Jamil.

Old Woman: Ah yes. I would like to complain to you about this computer I just bought.

Me: O.K. well what is the problem?

Old Woman: This computers quality is so poor. I spent over $500 dollars on it and it broke on the first day.

Me: I'm sorry about that, but tell me what the problem is and maybe I can help.

Old Woman: That cup holder on the computer broke!

Me: uhhhh...... The what?

Old Woman: The cup holder!

Me: Are you sure your computer has a cup holder because I have never seen one on any computer?

Old Woman: It is the one that comes out when you push the button.

Me: HHHMMMM.... Oh no miss that is not a cup holder. That is what holds the CDs as well as the DVDs. (It was funny, but at the same time I felt a little sad for her only because it was a little old lady)

Old Woman: Oh. Well can I return it.

Me: uuhhh. Well just come on back in and I will see what I can do.

Old Woman: alright thank you sir.

Well I had to make up some bull to the ladies at customer service when the old woman came in. They performed the exchange because I said the computer could not retract the cd tray and in shipping it was damaged and thats why it was broken off. So they gave her a new unit and she thanked me and went on her way. I thought in my head that the this was halarious, but not everyone can be a computer wiz. If it were anybody else other than an elderly person I wouldnt have done that. It still is crazy though that she actually thought it was a cup holder. lol

If anybody else has any nerdy stories please share.

aw its so sad that no one has replyed im sure i have stories i just cant think of any right now

i used to work at an office supply store. i have lots of stories.

one guy thought we sold him a faulty printer because it wasn't printing his pictures correctly. he brought in a sheet of photo paper that was dripping with ink. he said it was the photo he tried to print. well, he printed on the wrong side of the paper so the ink wasn't able to be absorbed.

another person wanted to exchange his digital camera b/c he thought there was something wrong with the screen. then i pulled the protective sheet off the display. that seemed to fix it.

and sometimes people can't get their new pens to write b/c they leave the plastic covering on the ball point.

I guess I can't blame an old person... with all that new-fangled technology, they just don't know what to do...

If it was anyone else, I'd be saying how incredibly stupid they were.

Some games (one that I can think of off the top of my head is Stepmania) do run faster if you hold down the tab key. It doesn't help with the loading but it stops the game from waiting for the target time to go to the next frame so I seems to load faster. Emulators also have that function which makes playing games a lot faster if your character runs really fast instead of the slow pace they are supposed to go at.
