bitch, Bernier

Some people are ahead of their time...

Woman: *bounces up to me* Hello!
Me: *smiles* Hello.
Woman: I was wondering if you could tell me if you have a book I'm looking for; I can't seem to find it on the shelves in your Fantasy section.
Me: Sure, do you have the title or author?
Woman: I can't remember exactly, but it's released on December 1st.
Me: ...
Woman: *looks patiently*
Me: ...It's still November.
Woman: Oh. So you don't have it? Okay then! *bounces off*
Me: *facepalm*

mikes_arse is having a good day at work

Customer: I need some information about our domain that we pay $120 a month for. What is it? It seems useless. I thought it was for a website which we don’t have, so I canceled payment and now our email doesn’t work anymore.

Me: That’s because your domain gives you a location on the internet to accept email.

Customer: But we have Telecom broadband, which provides our internet! So what does our domain do? What is that for?

Me:Okay. I'll try to use a real life parable here. Telecom builds roads to access the internet. You can use them to browse websites, etc.

Customer: Okay..

Me:Now, your domain name is like your house, and the web mail is your mailbox so that mail can be delivered to your online address. By cancelling payment for your domain, you basically just sold your house.

Customer: Oh.
