FML - The follow-up

Today, while working at Home Depot, I was asked to cut some wire. When I asked her how much, she said, "From my computer to the wall". After explaining for a while that I didn't know how far that is, she left. FML

tdawgg Say more :
We sell electrical wire by the foot, she may have a more handy family member at home that need it, but she did come back an hour later and got 50 feet... I think her computers in the middle of her backyard. :P. sad thing is, we deal with these kinds of requests ever day... Retail sucks!!

No, 59, that will probably cause even more brain damage. You just need to wait them out, hopefully with time and effort they'll come out of their stupor. Stupidity is like a coma, some people are in and out in a flash, while others are stuck in there for years and years.

You couldn't just give her 10 feet of wire?

Or less, op's customer may have had a desk beside the outlet and would've complained she had excess wire or in stupid people terms as she would've used, "you, uuuuum gave me uuuuum to much stringy stuff"

Humanity has entered the Age of Ignorance. So much intelligence is so readily available that we end up seeking very little of it, modeled by negative feedback.

Computer to the wall huh? Must be one of those weird American measurements

I dunno what weird measurements you're talking about. I always measure with grains of sand. Sure it takes a few hours to measure something, but it's accurate.

Way to make fun of us for using feet and inches! You're so clever.

Well, considering that OP is from Canada and I believe they have used metric since the 80's.. Must be about the span of moose antlers if we're going to be ignorant about it.

79 - The joke was plenty funny. I laughed. I don't know why this is being down voted so much.

"weird american measurements" is stardard, right? When I use metric, It always feels like I am taking the easy way out. And you should give the people who use standard daily some credit. Not only do we know how many feet are in a mile (note: it is not 1000) but we can convert to metric for those people who dont. That takes a little more skill than being metric like the rest of the world.

How unprofessional of you, OP. Why didn't you just use your psychic computer geek powers to find out how far away her computer is from the wall? No wonder she simply left. Actually, you're lucky she didn't report you to management for meeting so incompetent and lazy.
