|This one 's from Holland (yes, in Europe)
Some time ago, while I was doing repairs in a workshop, the telephone rang. I answered it and the lady on the other end told me her stereo had gone defective and blew a fuse. I agreed it must be defective and sugested that I had it picked up for repair. Then she said: I already replaced that fuse several times until I found what causes the problem. I asked her what she found to be defective and she replied: The power switch! 'cause every time I toggle the power switch the new fuse blows, too! I had serious problems to keep a straight face...

|Back in the early 70's when I first got into the electronics hobby, Radio shack used sell lots of parts, and some of their employees actually knew stuff about electronics. A few years ago I went in and bought a few pots and mentioned to the sales guy that the quality of the pots was a little better than they had been in the past. His response was "electronics is one thing I don't know anything about". Guess that explains why he was working at Radio Shack.|

|A few days ago, a younger guy comes into the store and buys a couple pedals and a Line 6 distortion modeler. Yesterday, he shows up and asks "What's the deal with my Line 6 pedal? It sounds really digital." ...um..|

|Walked by a redneck talking to a salesman at Good Guys today. He was looking at a new stereo. Passing by the two of them I couldn't help but hear the redneck say,
"Just cause it's high fidelity, doesn't mean it sounds any good".
Damn, theres some heavy wisdom going on right there.

|Q:How many guitar players does it take to change a light bulb?
A:6. 1 to change the bulb, and 5 to stand around with their arms folded, criticising his technique.
