Today at the office I had the pleasure of working in Customer Service, I was busy re-stickering Xbox games when a young gentleman came in with a Canon Powershot S80 and sets it on the counter claiming it isn't working, I ask when it stopped working and he replies by saying it was working until sometime on Saturday afternoon. I pick up the camera and notice that the camera has left a single drop of water on the counter (I say nothing to the customer knowing that the warranty has already left the building...) I notice that the camera smells like a mixture of sea water and something else I can't describe.
I then see that the customer has a waterproof housing which I ask if I can inspect it...all the seals were fine. :???:

Still baffled I ask the customer what he was doing with the camera when it stopped working:

"I was scuba diving" How deep? "10 metres" (housing is rated to 140m)

I continue on by asking what happened when it stopped working:

"I was photographing some fish and the batteries went flat so I changed the batteries."

Did I just hear that right? I asked him again... Same answer.

The manager was reading over my shoulder... I calmly asked him to take over while I go out the back for a minute, I promptly 'went missing' for 10mins *Queue hysterical laughing out the back in the warehouse by me*


Thank you Mr Scuba Diver for making my job the best one in the world. :mrgreen:
OMG.... how idiotic.... im mean seriously.... still, good for a laugh eh :lol:
Sometimes stupidity is unrealistic, but unfortunatly, never really surprising.

Man, what a tool.
haha thats awesome, he's lucky the thing didnt blow up in his face when he tried to turn it back on.

Yeah, working in retail leaves you open to a lot of dumb people - I think Bace can also vouch for this. :lol:
