----- Original True Story From Australia -----
Here is another one that left me speachless

Customer calls and wants to buy new HDD for his PC. He says that he fried the old one. Naturaly, I asked if he is sure old hard disk is dead. I told him that there may be other problems, but he said 'I am sure it is dead. I connected the power plug to it the wrong way around'. I am telling him tha this is impossible since HDD power connector is keyed. He said 'Yes, it did not fit at first, but I cut the corners off'.

And in New Zealand customer clean VCR heads with electric tooth brush.

cust cleans vcr head with a sheet of newspaper and half a bottle of meths. pickups on the head are totaly destroyed.

cust uses plumbers silicone as thermal paste on cpu. computer stops crashing once silicone is removed.

had several pro built pc's that had no air vents at all. drill holes in case and computer stops crashing.(i'm surprised they didn't catch fire)

Must be weak wimps in Australia: of course you can connect a disk drive power connector the wrong way --- you just push harder.
