Ahh, the Wrongulator.

I recall back when I used to work minimum wage at a drug store.

We constantly had old bitties, and even professionally-dressed women coming back to return their "broken" calculator.

Their problem was they bought an Algebra calculator that handled order of operations for more advanced math. IE 2+3x4 == 24 instead of 20. They were expecting to get a regular cheap calculator even though this was more expensive than the cheap ones in the aisle.

They kept calling me a liar and that we were selling defective merchandise. They want to talk to the BBB, I obviously didn't understand Mathematics, etc. I tried to explain it to them but I was obviously "a stupid kid that wasn't going anywhere." Actually the women in their 40's were the b*tchier of the types complaining.

Yeh, a stupid kid that got a full ride to the Honors College at a University, was a CS major and a Statistics minor, and was just working to pay for the dorm / textbooks / dating / etc. I obviously didn't understand math

Ahh, the good old days, when I had stand in place for 6+ hours and listen to that BS all day. It's amazing I didn't go postal.
