One of my co-workers is selling some of her new-in-box iPods (her husband gets her a new one every year, and she’s never opened a single one) to another co-worker. They’re discussing the sizes she has to sell.

“This is a 30gig. I don’t know why anybody would want anything bigger. Did you know they sell a 160 or something? My kids and my husband have every popular song that’s been on the radio for like the past 12 years, and they can’t even fill 5 gigabytes.”

I respond:

“My wife and I have over 40 gigabytes, and we have some CD’s we haven’t ripped yet.”

To which she says:

“What kind of music do you freaks listen to?!”

Apparently, having more just just top-40 radio hits is freakish.
