When I worked for a local sound company, our rental manager had some version of this conversation at least once a week.

Customer:  The Wireless mic you rented us doesn’t work.
Rental Manager:  is the microphone turned on?
Customer:  yes
RM: is the receiver plugged in and turned on?
Customer:  yes
RM: Are they both on the same frequency?
Customer:  yes
RM: okay, what kind of sound system is it plugged into?
Customer:  Sound System?

LOL!

Well, in all fairness, he *could* have had it plugged into a Tascam DR-40 just to record the audio.

I worked at a nearby college for 6 years and had an admissions officer ask me if I had a wireless mic she could carry around campus while she gave tours so she wouldn't have to speak so loudly. I said "Sure, who's going to carry the sound system?". Blank stare.

Well...this is "wireless"...

I offered my megaphone, but it was a Mackie and she said only a Meyer or D&B were acceptable options.

A missed opportunity.  It even has a wireless option.

The Tour Guide type systems have been around for a long, long time and back in the day I recall Anchor, Sennheiser and maybe a couple others making them.

Unfortunate brand name choice for a portable system.

I was poking around in my city's PA store today and three guys came in looking to buy a mic for karaoke.  Same story as this thread; they thought the mic was all they needed.

 Budget was $200.
