I worked for a sound system installation co. I walked into the shop one afternoon and a customer, who had bought a wireless mic for his church, was there. He said that the mic didn't work when he turned it on. He proceeded to plug the wireless receiver into the wall, switched the mic on and said "See, there's no sound" as he pointed to the 1/4" output jack on the receiver!

While working as a student at a local hospital, I had a work order come in to fix a light. The description on the work order said "Please fix light, flickers" but because of sloppy hand writing, it looked more like "Please fix light, f*ckers"

I was living and working in a countryside community back in 93.
One day I had the most surreal experience standing next to Peggy, a coworker who was about to use a faxmachine for the first time in her life.
She copied the original before sending it...

So i'm sitting in the local music shop's "Circle of vintage" with a B15N across me,waiting for a service guy to give me a hand with ordering some tolex. my 15 year old brother comes over with an SG,plugs into 'that wierdo amp my brother likes' and starts playing. About ten seconds later,he starts to notice something off. he stands up,looks at the salesman,and almost manages to say "That vintage amp is a piece of sh*t!"

My brother had left the SG with the pickups facing the speakers for the cab,so when the tubes warmed up (Right bout where he accentuated the SH in....) it bombarded the entire store with feedback. this continues until the owner of the store wanders around the corner,flips the amp off,and directs my brother out of the store.

I got my tolex with a note attached to the receipt that says "Tolex is cheap. My hearing aids aren't. --####"
