her borrow hers —> her borrow yours
* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' has a side mission revolving around Jo, who has very bad luck with machines. First she breaks the coffee machine at the cafe where she works, requiring you to find replacement parts for her. When you do, she offers to make you an iced latte as a reward, and promptly breaks the freezer and runs away because she's afraid of being fired. After finding more replacement parts for the freezer, she decides to talk to her boss... only for her cell phone to break. You have the option of letting her borrow hers, but the game also gives you the option to "keep your comm device far far away from this girl".

** Since then Jon has also started live streaming, and in many of the games he tries, he discovers glitches, or the game simply decides to be weird and possibly game breaking that night, such as the time he thought he broke his SNES's eject button, except it fixed itself later, or the time his Rectron (NES clone console), decided to read his Videogame/{{SuperMarioBrothers3}} cartridge wrong and the game was horribly glitched, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2CIBrncUxwg but he decided to play it anyway.]]

* Roger from ''FoxTrot'' has blown up his wife and younger son's computers at least five times. He also seems to have the "talent" of accidentally deleting the files of the computer ''with one click''. He needs an entire manual to find the ON button, and once even mistook the computer simply being turned off as being frozen!

* In ''RiversOfLondon'', using magic near electronic devices will cause them to short out if they aren't disconnected from their power source, and using it near such a device that also contains computer chips will reduce those chips to silicon dust. Peter, the protagonist, rigs his cell phone with a cutout switch so he won't have to stop and take out its battery every time he uses magic.

* E-1s and E-2s in all military branches have this reputation for anything that's more complex then a rock and even then. (E-1s and E-2s are the lowest ranks possible.) An old saying is that it you want to see how durable something truely is give it to an E-1 and wait five minutes. If it's not wait another five.
