Today, a customer complained that his earphones stopped properly functioning even though he bought them less than a month ago. After checking them, I realised that there was so much earwax caked into them that it affected the sound quality. FML
iGagged tells us more :
Hi everyone, OP here ! Made an account just to follow up. 1) No, sadly he didn't suspect a thing and didn't bother taking a close look at his earphones. 2) It was awkward indeed. Very, very awkward. He was nice though, he apologised and immediately left. Hopefully he'll check his earphones next time. And thank you for commenting on my username haha !

I've read every comment so far, and no one else has wondered how he managed to spread so much ear wax that it messed up the head phones in only a months time. That's only a month guys. A month.

@29 Some people have over active earwax production. My sister does and if she doesn't clean out her ears with hydrogen peroxide at least twice a year, she goes deaf. They didn't realize that until she was twelve and went deaf for some time, she can read lips really good now though.

I am the same. It was found earlier but yeah, I do need to take care of my ears a lot. It is no excuses for the customer tho. That customer is still a slob. Sorry for you op.

#16 q-tips are good for cleaning the outside part of your ear, but not for cleaning out earwax from the inside, because it mostly packs it in farther instead of cleaning it out.

God damn. Nice alliteration.

@25, That's a bad idea. Q-tips would only pack it in more. The proper way to clean them out is to use a baby snot sucker thing and put 2/3 hydrogen peroxide and 1/3 lukewarm water into your ear (too cold or too hot will make you dizzy), and wait until you stop hearing crackling. Then tilt your head sideways and let the goo drain out. Repeat if needed.

People with unusual ear canals can actually be injured or hurt by using Q tips. You have to use liquids to clean your ears, and if not bad build up like this happens.
