Friend, iOS user

F: Hey, why does your phone look different from mine ?
M: I'm running Android. You're on iOS.
F: Oh...do you think you could tell me how to download this Android app you use ??
M: It's not an app. It's an operating system
F: So where do I download it from ? How do I install it ???
M: Look, you cant just DOWNLOAD Android and install it. It's like Windows...you cant just DOWNLOAD it and INSTALL it on your phone....also , yo-
F: WAAAIT !!! You liar ! I'm not that dumb...how come Lumia has Windows on it ?!?!
M: ....yeah, I was just pulling your leg, go to (random porn site) and download android. Install it on your phone and launch the all
F: Was that so hard ? Sheesh...


He now doesn't even look me in the face :p guess he opened the link


Me explaining GPS to my dad

D : I'm thinking of getting a GPS
M : Why ? You phone can be used as a GPS too
D : No, I dont have it.
M : You need to install a specific app to make it work, like PAPAGO
D : That's false advertising. If they say it has GPS, it has to have GPS. I dont want to download GPS into my phone...
M : Look, first off, GPS is hardware related. It's a feature like wifi. Wifi will work but without a specific app like Browser or Facebook, you can't use Wifi. As for the app, apps are one in a million. It's like this; Wifi connects to the internet right ? Well you have 2 ways of going to Facebook. Via the website in Browser or the Facebook APP. There are so many ways of doing it....understand ?
D :....I'm still thinking of getting a GPS...GPS isn't hardware, it's a software you download. I'm not that dumb when it comes to technology...learn your place, son
M : *eye starts twitching*

Not a tech question but the most retarded thing I ever heard.

I work for a retailer and last year I got a call from a customer asking us what time we closed.I answered him eleven o'clock. The customer then says that's one one right.
I say yes while face palming myself.

Yesterday at work, I pulled out my new OG Galaxy Note, and the idiots clustered around me, all amazed at the new iPhone. I tried to explain that it wasn't an iPhone at all, but because it was white and glossy it HAD to be the new iPhone. One of them way even holding the iPhone 4S, and another had the blue OG Note. I finally made her take her cover off and and showed them it was the same phone, that didn't help either. I finally walked away, but as I did I heard the IPhone girl say," well mine is still better than her's because it's an Apple and they are the most expensive."

Massive double facepalm.

So true.

They like Apple cause its expensive.
If I take a dump in the bucket and sell it for $1 million and stick an apple logo, people would still buy it cause it has apple logo and its expensive

Customer: what's the monthly fee for Bluetooth?
Me: just write me a check for $10.00 every month and I'll keep it going.
Customer: really? Thank you. That's not illegal is it?
Me: well yes it is cause bluetooth is free! :)

This wasn't a question but I cleared up some space on my cousin's computer. Later, called saying I deleted the sound off of his computer. :rolleyes: I told him that was impossible, and that he probably had it muted. He said it wasn't, and that I deleted it. So my parents had to drive my 30 minutes to his house. I walked in, clicked on the volume control, and guess what? It was muted! So I just unmuted it and walked out without saying word...

Not too tech related but still a funny question
Me *looks at massive pile of books my friend is hauling around* you know you can get ebooks for those right?
Friend: what's an ebook?
Me: electronic book. Like a PDF file.
Friend: (please note this guy has an A* in IT) yeah, but that's illegal
Me: nope, you can get legit books. Kindle works pretty good for them too
Friend: what's a kindle?
Me: *resisting urge to strangle him* Amazon Kindle? Best ebook reader? Only reads books?
Friend: is it a tablet?
Me: *kills him* (NOTE: I didn't actually kill him obviously, I just smacked him lightly on the head)

    Me: *showing my friend Google Wallet*
    Friend: Woah! That's so cool. Can you put that on my iPhone?
    Me: Nope, it's only for some Android phones
    Friend: Don't lie to me! There is nothing an iPhone can't do that an Android can!
    Me: .... Ohh, I'm sorry. Can I see your phone, I might be able to get it?
    Friend *hands over phone*
    Me: *takes a look* I'm sorry man, you're getting an ID 10 T error. It affects all iPhone users.

    So can't you just Photoshop the video to be HD?

    So today I went to a supermarket where they know me just a little too well. And while I was ready to check out the terminal suddenly broke down with an unknown error.

    A moment later the manager comes over to see if he can do something. Immediately he looks at me and with an exasperated sigh says... "Please tell me you didn't root it."
