what about turning on the light in the room he's in
Worst thing I've read today.
Fuck that story was a rollercoaster. That plot twist about the beeps had me on the edge of my seat. "6" fuck I was floored. Will there be a sequel centered around when you give your pops the new keyboard? Maybe it's DOA fuuuuck that would be intense!

So long OP, best wishes
Oh wow
Holy shit, this is too ebin. Someone screencap this asap.
>I got hit in the feels by this thread.

I once cheaped out in my psu and lost 2 hard drives.
I then proceeded to cheap out again and it's currently running my i5 760 at 4.1ghz and a gtx 670 with +130 core clock and +250 mem clock.

$65 80+ silver psu 550w.
Australian dollars. Being tech illiterate I let the salesperson trick me into buying his shaw 860w psu.
>be me, 12 years old
>playing Sims 1 on CRT monitor
>press some buttons and screen goes upside down
>couldn't figure out how to reverse it
>dad turns monitor upside down

Immigrants are truly the worst. They assume warranty covers absolutely everything, even the mistakes they have made. This one guy dropped his computer and thought warranty of the first world would get it fixed because he isn't in his shithole country.

Where the fuck do they always get those ideas?

Why do they always buy the shittiest computers, then complain when their new $300 computer isn't blazing fast. Nigger of course it's not fast it's the cheapest piece of shit we have.

Then they always ask if something is new. This isn't Pajeeet's uncles PC shack, of course it's fucking new.
Here's my story

>Artsy looking hipster (the sort who never works for a living) kinda guy walks in just before closing
>He wants the cheapest Macbook we had listed online but with more memory (a custom build)
>Apple personnel already left work so I'm stuck with this guy
>Look up specs of said mac pro
>13.3" screen, 1280x800 resolution (seriously)
>4gb of DDR3 (granted, 1600mhz)
>5400rpm HDD
>2012 model
>Listed at over $1200 because dat logo
>Ask the guy if he's sure he wants it, it'll be way more if he wants to customize it with more ram
>He's sure
>I'm not sure, I try to convince him to buy a new macbook instead
>For like $150 more he could have a very high res screen, a much newer processor, 8gb of ram, SSD, list goes on
>He's saying he can't afford it
>Dude has 1200 cash, he could take the remainder on credit or installments
>Actually says the screen is too sharp, makes it blurry
>No, it doesn't work like that...
>Try telling him the computer he's buying has the same hardware specs a sub $500 asus laptop has
>Eventually tell the guy to come back the next day when the apple people are at work

I just didn't have the heart to sell him that outdated piece of shit mac, I was sure the apple people managed to make him change his mind. After all they wear that stupid garment which has the logo.
Topkek, when did this thread transform in "bullshit thread"?
