    Back in 2003 I worked for CompUSA in Maryland. Ah those were the days. I helped a lot of customers with their questions. One day I was at the Apple section. I was actually saving up money to buy my first mac. An lady came by I would say in her 40's or 50's not sure.

    I was putting away some mac software away and she started talking to me. She asked, "what are these?" :eek:

    I told her these are computers just like the ones over there and pointed to the desktop pc section. She then asks "Are these computers for kids?" Another :eek:

    I said they are for everyone. From Engineers to students. Everyone I said. She starts walking to the mac desktops. Starts touching them and says "hmm it's plastic" and walks away. I kid you not this happened to me one day. I just nodded my head and did this *face palm*.

    I can't really explain this to my family since I am the techie in my immediate family so I thought I would share this with you guys. I am not sure on why I remember this but I do. People have told me I have a good memory before.

    This has to be one of those WTF moments.
