cell phone repair shop
New Brunswick, Canada
(I opened my own cell phone repair store six months ago and I am absolutely flabbergasted by the amount of dumb people in this world that I have come in to contact with in that time. These are some stories from the last six months):
After I close my store, I have calls automatically re-routed to my cell phone. I got this call at 7:30pm tonight (2.5 hours after closing time):
Woman: I have an iPad Mini. I dropped it and the glass is cracked. Can you fix it?
Me: I’m sorry but we do not repair the iPad Mini. We won’t even touch them.
Woman: Why the hell not? I want this thing fixed!
Me: We do not repair the iPad Mini because the internal wires are glued to the bottom of the screen. This means that we would tear out all the internal wiring if we tried to remove the touch screen. (I’m trying to dumb it down).
Woman: Your website says that you repair iPad Mini! It says “iPad 1, 2, 3”
Me: Our website says that we repair the iPad 1, 2, 3 and 4. We do not have the iPad Mini on our website and have never offered this repair.
Woman: Who else repairs them?
Me: I’m sorry but there is no one who will touch an iPad Mini.
Woman: I want it fixed. GRRRRR! (she started moaning and growling into the phone at this point).
Me: We do not repair the iPad Mini.
Woman: GRRRRR! F**K YOUUUUU!
This happened few months ago:
An elderly gentleman came in to my store this afternoon at about 5 minutes before closing. He just stood there so I approached him and said “Hi” to see if he needed any help. He stood there looking at me without saying a single word while holding this big bag. This went on for about 10 minutes. Finally he unzipped his jacked …and stood there in silence for another 5 minutes. Then he zipped his jacket back up and slowly walked out the door.
I this phone call about 3-4 times a day. I doesn’t matter if the repair costs is $40 or $400, it’s always the same thing:
customer: “I heard you fix phones cheap”
me: “Yes, what kind of phone do you have”
customer: “Samsung Galaxy S2. The screen is broken”
me: “Which Galaxy S2 is it?
customer: “Galaxy S2…”
me: “Yes, you’ve said that. Do you know which Galaxy S2?”
customers: “Do they make more than one?”
me: “Yes, they sell four different models in Canada”
customer: “Errrr…let me check…”
me: “Does it have a big home button at the bottom?”
me: “It’ll be $199 to fix the screen”
customer: “HOLY F**K!!! THAT’S NOT CHEAP!!!”
me: “The screen for the Samsung Galaxy S2 costs $150 just for the part”
customer: “I CAN ALMOST BUY A NEW F**KING PHONE FOR THAT MUCH”
me: “I’m sorry but Samsung Galaxy screens are very expensive to buy”
customer: “F**K THAT, I’M THROWING IT IN THE GARBAGE”
I also get the regular meth addicts and welfare bums that come in to my store.
There is one girl who has been in my store twice in the last three weeks looking to buy a new iPhone. She usually begs for change and draws pictures of aliens just down the street.
This happened when I first opened my store (about five months ago).
A woman and her son walked in to my store. she looked like an average over weight soccer mom and her son was the typical emo/skinny jeans/hipster 17 year old.
The woman shows me her son’s broken iPhone 5 and I tell her that it’ll be $300 to repair the screen (at the time the screens were selling for $270).
As soon as I say $300 her son throws a huge temper tantrum in the middle of my store, rips open the door, and angrily walks out. I just look at the woman and she didn’t even flinch.
I also get a ton of phone calls and emails just like this:
"I have a samsung HTC…"
"my phone is snow found it much damage how much" (yes, people write like that).
"my phone is water damaged how much"
"how much to fix my phone?"
"how much to fix my android?"
"My iPhone is broken. How much to fix it"
"i found this phone how much is it worth?"
"i plugged X charger/jump started/put different battery into my phone and now it won’t start"
