Post by melodiccolor on Mon Sep 15, 2008 3:12 pm

If ever you feel clueless about anything tech, read these, and you will never feel so dumb again:

Tech support: What kind of computer do you have?
Female customer: A white one...
=================================

Customer: Hi, this is Maureen. I can't get my diskette out.
Tech support: Have you tried pushing the Button?
Customer: Yes, sure, it's really stuck.
Tech support: That doesn't sound good; I'll make a note.
Customer: No, wait a minute... I hadn't inserted it yet...
it's still on my desk. sorry....

=================================
Tech support: Click on the 'my computer' icon on to the left of
the screen.
Customer: Your left or my left?
=================================
Tech support: Good day. How may I help you?
Male customer: Hello... I can't print.
Tech support: Would you click on 'start' for me and.
Customer: Listen pal; don't start getting technical on me! I'm
not Bill Gates.

=================================

Customer: Hi, good afternoon, this is Martha, I can't print.
Every time I try, it says 'Can't find printer.' I've even lifted
the
printer and placed it in front of the monitor, but the computer
still
say s he can't find it.
=================================

Customer: I have problems printing in red...
Tech support: Do you have a color printer?
Customer: Aaaah...................thank you.

=================================
Tech support: What's on your monitor now, ma'am?
Customer: A teddy bear my boyfriend bought for me at Woolies.
=================================
Customer: My keyboard is not working anymore.
Tech support: Are you sure it's plugged into the computer?
Customer: No. I can't get behind the computer.
Tech support: Pick up your keyboard and walk 10 paces back.
Customer:! OK
Tech support: Did the keyboard come with you?
Customer: Yes
Tech support: That means the keyboard is not plugged in. Is
there another keyboard?
Customer: Yes, there's another one here. Ah...that one does
work...
===============================
Tech support: Your password is the small letter 'a' as in
apple, a capital letter V as in Victor, the number 7.
Customer: Is that 7 in capital letters?

===============================
Customer: can't get on the Internet.
Tech support: Are you sure you used the right password?
Customer: Yes, I'm sure. I saw my colleague do it.
Tech support: Can you tell me what the password was?
Customer: Five stars.
================================
Tech support: What anti-virus program do you use?
Customer: Netscape.
Tech support: That's not an anti-virus program.
Customer: Oh, sorry...Internet Explorer.

================================
Customer: I have a huge problem. A friend has placed a screen
saver on my computer, but every time I move the mouse, it
disappears.
================================
Tech support: How may I help you?
Customer: I'm writing my first e-mail.
Tech support: OK, and what seems to be the problem?
Customer: Well, I have the letter 'a' in the address, but how
do I get the circle around it?

================================
A woman customer called the Canon help desk with a problem with
her printer.
Tech support: Are you running it under windows?
Customer: 'No, my desk is next to the door, but that is a good
point. The man sitting in the cubicle next to me is under a
window,
and his printer is working fine.'
================================
And last but not least...

Tech support: 'Okay Colin, let's press the control and escape
keys at the same time. That brings up a task list in the
middle of the
screen. Now type the letter 'P ' to bring up the Program
Manager.'
Customer: I don't have a P.
Tech support: On your keyboard, Colin.
Customer: What do you mean?
Tech support: 'P'.....on your keyboard, Colin.
Customer: I'M NOT GOING TO DO THAT!!

LOL, I have a friend who would appreciate that a lot. He spends a lot of his time teasing me about my lack of tech savy 'til I threaten him with med speak.

That reminds me of the story I heard of a customer who called tech support to ask where to put in the CD. After telling him about placing it in the CD/DVD drive, the customer responded "Oh, I thought that was the coffee cup holder..."

Oh yes, that was one of the funniest stories from the original list of tech support calls. I thought I'd posted them here, but evidentally it was at another hsp forum from the time before we were here.

Amazing how clueless people are. Shocked whee!
