Reminds me of a friend, his family thinks he is a computer genius. He would start his computer up and after a minutes it would shut off. It did this to him for 3 weeks. He takes the computer to a computer tech and he says it'* fine and didn't shut off at all on him. The problem was my friend would kick the power cord on the computer after it was running and it would shut down because the power cord was loose. What was funny is I asked him if it was plugged in right and he said yes, but found out from someone else that lives in the house that he never checked the power cord. LOL!

This was many many years ago. I'm talking the mid 80s here. Had a friend in the computer club. Not a lot of members back then. He would save his work on a 5" floppy disk. That really was about as good as it got back then. But it kept getting corrupted. So he had me check. None of the other disks had this problem, only that one he saved work on. He even tried other disks, same problem. So I sat down, saved his work. Took the disk out, handed it to him, he put the disk in, file was fine. Thanks he said. He popped it out, and then stuck it to the side of the computer case with a magnet. Ahh, why do you do that? So I know where it is. Do you do that with any other disks? No, just that one. You do under stand floppy disks are magnet right. He sat there a moment, looked at me and said, I do now.

its amazing how many stupid people there are, i worked on office machines in the late 90'* and the owner charged 110 bucks for me to show up and still there were countless times i would get there and the cord would be unplugged or the front cover wouldnt be closed.

I got in an argument with someone at work. The person didn't understand that there is 2 kinds of weight scales at work. I tried explaining one is in pounds and ounces (like 10 pounds 8 ounces) because it can only go up to 15 on the 2 slots to the far right (16 ounces make a pound). The other scale goes by pounds and tenths and hundredths (like 10.50 pounds)

The person still doesn't understand.

remind me of the time i had my wife go to advance auto to get a starter solenoid for her grand prix, since the starter liked to engage, spin the motor just a little bit, then kick back out.

i had to argue with them over the phone for like 15 minutes that my problem was not the damn crank sensor, gave up and just got a new starter elsewhere.
