Seems a bit out there, but makes scents when you think about it.
I don't know if this counts, but we were just shopping, the self service scanner says someone will be with you shortly, man comes over, husband says "nice to meet you someone". Our daughter actually groaned and put her head in her hands
I had to fly from Atlanta to Chicago yesterday.
After I just gone through the security checkpoint and was putting my belt back on and all the other crap from that plastic tub they make you run through the scanner, I handed it back to one of the TSA agents and told him he should not carry too many of those at once.
Because he'd be Bin Laden.
For our anniversary my wife requested a printer/scanner. After doing some research I tell her that Brother would be a good brand to get.
"The one I'm looking at is black. That's a little bit racists, right?" Her face doesn't change, an indication that the joke failed and just to move on.
So she asks me if the printer has cables.
"Nope! It works through the wifi so you won't have to worry about wires! You can even print stuff from your phone!"
"Oh. So doesn't that mean I can't hook a Brother up?"
I was so proud of her.
So I work with Honeywell scanners in my business. My boss bought 20 or so scanners and told me to test them out, then give them a name. Running outta good ones and need some help. Time to shine Reddit. Looking for punny scanner names and references
We were going through airport security and they made him go through the new scanner thing like this: http://www.blogcdn.com/www.switched.com/media/2008/04/image-scan.jpg
When they said they had to pat down his left arm he said: "must be too much muscle" followed by a necessary dad laugh.
I was standing at the counter with one of my employees and we were discussing the fact that the scanner doesnt work very well.
Employee: I think its just an ethernet cable.
Me: Change it out with register 3 and I'll order a new one.
Customer: Don't bother, its an ethernet cable, so ether it works or ether it doesn't.
Groans all around.
"This thumbprint scanner never works for me. Why does the biometric scanner on the server door always let you in on the first try?"
I guess it's because my thumbprint is pretty unique.
but cats can.
