5channel Thread Title

Customer “Give me a Sony iPhone!” Staff “Xperia, right?” Customer “No! Sony iPhone!” Nonsense customer became a hot topic

Diary

“Can I get a Sony iPhone?” I was asked and, I thought “ah, I guess he means Xperia” and so I showed it to him
“I told you, a Sony iPhone!” He said and took me to the iPhone section, “Out of them, which one is the Sony iPhone?”
“I’ve only used Sony before so, even if you give me a Toshiba, Panasonic or any other iPhone I can’t use it!” he spouted off.
“Well… iPhones are all made by a manufacturer called Apple so they are all the same” even though I told him so, “Mine is Sony!!”
I’ve never heard of Apple and such!!
When I signed the contract, I was definitely told that it was a Sony!
He started to blow up
"Our shop doesn’t have a Sony iPhone… Please try another store…" That’s all I could say.

Give me a NEC NES
Is he mixing up smartphone and iPhone?
He probably doesn’t know (about smartphones) so the staff should explain to him so that it’s easy to understand.
It’s like you are saying “can I get a Fami-chiki” at Lawson
My parents were referring to PlayStation as NES lol
Is it like Hocchikisu?
My parents are like this too. They don’t understand at all
It’s like referring to all robots as Gundams
It I were you, I would show him an iPhone and Xperia and ask him which one.
How about writing SONY with a permanent marker on the back of the iPhone?

って (= という, “called”)

Do you know an anime called “Naruto”?
I live in a city called Narashino.
This is a book written by an author called Osamu Dazai.

だろう (expresses assumption)

It will rain tomorrow so the game will probably be cancelled.
If the kids see the Christmas cake, they will probably be happy.
You’d better not go to that country. It’s an unsafe place.

Verb + ば (used to give a suggestion)

If you want to improve your Japanese, why don’t you read more books?
Why don’t you rest here for a while?
Suit yourself.
