Repair Client: I have anti-virus software, but I got a bunch of viruses anyway.

Me: That's because the anti-virus software you're using has a reputation for missing most viruses. You need to use this other one (free), which is proven by independent lab tests to catch almost all malware.

Repair Client: I'd rather finish using the current anti-virus software. (About a year left on the subscription.) I paid a lot of money for it.

Me: Yes, but it doesn't work.

Repair Client: I don't care. I just want to get my money's worth.

There are so many people that are exactly like bad, I don’t understand it! It’s hilarious and frustrating at the same time.

Sounds more like the viruses are the ones getting his money's worth.
