So lately the tech stories on F] have become incredibly
popular. Compilations of shorter stories and
conversations with customers has also become pretty
common on F] so I decided I' d throw together a
compilation or two of different dumb shit, shit that
makes you angry, and general facepalm shit that
customers have said to me over the years. Ladies and
gentlemen, nsfw uploaders and neckbeards, I present
to you. Customers who just love to be difficult.
