Today, while working at a cell phone store, I helped an older woman learn how to use her newly updated phone. After trying to help her for over 20 minutes, she threatened to throw her phone at my head. FML

Well the phone should just fly right over your head shouldn't it? Just like the tech help you gave her seemed to.

Were you getting irate with her because she didn't know what to do?

This is why I like working tech support from home. No incoming projectiles from upset customers!

Sounds like your phone store could take a que from a certain physics class.

well..I have a better story...someone walked in the phone store I work at and demanded me to show him an iPhone 8, so I was like "the 7 just came out, do you mean 7?" but he raise his voice and said he wanna see 8 because its all over the internet that 8 is already out and my info is outdated. if its on the internet.. it must be true :) fyl

Some people get very, very angry when things aren't easy for them to figure out. Especially when technology is involved.

I agree with you here, especially when you have to call the customer service line and try to figure it out through, thick foreign accent.

You could have offered her a flip phone-Touchscreens are hard to navigate when you're used to a paperweight as a phone

sorry she let her frustration out on you..too bad there's no cure for stupidity :(

"Congratulation, [customer] finally you got one way to use your smartphone!"

Activate airplane mode, it will fly away
