    Had a computer shop and one woman came in looking for a PC for her son. She was insistent that it didn't have a celery processor.

    Example of an Internet connectivity call a few years back:

    me: Okay, so you can't access the Internet. Could you tell me how many lights are lit up on your modem?
    them: <angrily> I'm not a tech! How am I supposed to know that??
    me: Umm... look? And, perhaps, count?
    [pause]
    them: Should it be plugged in first?
    me: <facepalm> Yeah... let's try it that way.

    Mind you, my boss happened to be listening live to the call. I found this out when he (literally) fell out of his chair laughing!
