You can't make this stuff up!

Office bod: "Ello mate, is xyz there?"
Me: "I'm afraid he left the office about fifteen minutes ago."
Office bod: "Well he sent me an email for a second twin monitor. Thing is I want one the same size as Eric"
Me: "And what size does Eric have?"
Office bod: "A big one."
Me: "A big one? Can you be more specific, what size is it?"
Office bod: "Umm? 58 inch is it?"
Me: "I have no idea, measure it diagonally from corner to corner."
Office bod: "700mil"
Me: [Deep sigh] "So 28" Inch then?"
Office bod: "Yeah, suppose so."

Customer: "I need a Hi-Spec laptop something really stable for our business."
Me: "Well we have another customer who is in your line of work, I supplied them yesterday with one for just under £2K"
Customer: "Yes, the Director was thinking about £1K"
Me: "OK let me get a quote together for that and the other work you want doing."

A few minutes later.

Customer: "The budget for the laptop is £600.00."

And would you like me to throw in a box of crayons, some play-doh and a painting by numbers book? Hi-Spec pfffft

You rogue!

Customer: "This laptop you sold me is well dodgy!"
Me: "What do you mean dodgy?"
Customer: "There's no Windows 7 licence and when I went to register it someone has pulled the serial number off!"
Me: "They're under the battery."
