    This is hilarious but I feel so sorry for the customer for having to deal with someone so dense.

    Why it's a big deal is because these people are using this faulty math to take YOUR money.

    It's way too long to listen to the whole recording but from what I heard this is total madness.

    I didn't hear it all, I stopped when I heard this:
    customer: so, is $2 equal to 2 cents?
    moron:no, they're different
    customer: right, so then is $0.002 equal to 0.002 cents?
    moron: yeah, they're the same. They look the same on paper
    Wow.

    That was one of the funniest things I've ever heard. I'm amazed the customer managed to keep calm.

    Customer: Do you recognise that there's a difference between one dollar and one cent?
    Rep: Definitely.
    Customer: Do you recognise that there's a difference between half a dollar half a cent?
    Rep: Definitely.
    Customer: Do you therefore recognise that there's a difference between .002 dollars, and .002 cents?
    Rep: ... No.

    The scary part is this...

    The customer mentioned that we went through two other service reps and they both didn't understand, either.

    The lack of a proper education doesn't stop at just that one rep here... no.

    They ALL don't know math. BASIC math!!

    And this guy was the super-visor !?!

    Actually, Shaun further in he gets transfered once again. If you don't want to listen to the whole thing, I recommend the last 7 minutes.
