Mostly Crazy, Not So Good

Me: “Thank you for calling [store] tech support. This is [my name]. How can I help you?”

Caller: “Uh, yeah. My [game console] stopped working. Can I get it replaced free?”

Me: “When did you purchase it?”

Caller: “[Date].”

(I collect his information and locate his purchase and warranty in our database.)

Me: “You’re still within the 90 day warranty. What seems to be the problem with it?”

Caller: “We can’t put the game discs in.”

Me: “You mean some piece of the internal hardware is blocking the disc slot?”

Caller: “No. Last night we were having a party. My roommate got pretty drunk and thought the [game console] was the toaster, and he shoved a Pop-Tart in the slot. We can’t get it out.”

Me: “…You have a Pop-Tart stuck in the slot.”

Caller: “Yeah.”

Me: “I’m afraid that isn’t covered under the warranty, sir.”

Caller: “It isn’t?”

Me: “No. Only manufacturer defects are covered. Damage caused by the customer is not covered.”

Caller: “S***. I guess I don’t need to ask about the Blu-Ray player, then?”
