  • Something amusing...

    I found this amusing and thought I'd share it with y'all.

    > Take heart, anyone among you who believes he or she is
    > technologically challenged, you "ain't seen nuthin" yet.
    > This is an excerpt from a Wall Street Journal article:

    > 1. Compaq is considering changing the command "Press Any Key"
    > to "Press Return Key" because of the flood of calls asking where
    > the "Any" key is.

    > 2. AST technical support had a caller complaining that her
    > mouse was hard to control with the dust cover on. The cover
    > turned out to be the plastic bag the mouse was packaged in.

    > 3. Another Dell customer called to say he couldn't get his
    > computer to fax anything. After 40 minutes of
    > troubleshooting, the technician discovered the man was
    > trying to fax a piece of paper by holding it in front of the
    > monitor screen and hitting the "Send" key.

    > 4. Yet another Dell customer called to complain that his
    > keyboard no longer worked. He had cleaned it by filling up his
    > bathtub with soap and water and soaking the keyboard for a day,
    > then removing all the keys and washing them individually.

    > 5. A Dell technician received a call from a customer who was
    > enraged because his computer had told him he was "Bad and an
    > invalid." The tech explained that the computer's "bad command" and
    > "invalid" responses shouldn't be taken personally.

    > 6. A confused caller to IBM was having trouble printing
    > documents. He told the technician that the computer had said it
    > "couldn't find printer." The user had also tried turning the
    > computer screen to face the printer-but that his computer still
    > couldn't "see" the printer.
    > 7. An exasperated caller to Dell Computer Tech Support
    > couldn't get her new Dell Computer to turn on. After
    > ensuring the computer was plugged in, the technician asked her
    > what happened when she pushed the power button. Her response,
    > "I pushed and pushed on this foot pedal and nothing happened." The
    > "foot pedal" turned out to be the computer's mouse...

    > 8. Another customer called Compaq tech support to say her
    > brand new computer wouldn't work. She said she unpacked the
    > unit, plugged it in and sat there for 20 minutes waiting for
    > something to happen. When asked what happened when she pressed the
    > power switch, she asked, "What power switch?"

    9. Another IBM customer had trouble installing software and rang for
    > support. "I put in the first disk, and that was OK. It said to put
    > in the second disk, and had some problems with the disk. When it
    > said to put in the third disk, I couldn't even fit it in. " The
    > user hadn't realized that "Insert Disk 2" implied removing Disk 1
    > first.

    10. A story from a Novell NetWare SysOp:
    > CALLER: "Hello, is this Tech Support?" TECH: "Yes, it is.
    > How may I help you?"
    > CALLER: "The cup holder on my PC is broken -and I am within
    > my warranty period. How do I go about getting that fixed?"
    > TECH: "I'm sorry, but did you say a cup holder?"
    > CALLER: "Yes, it's attached to the front of my computer."
    > TECH: "Please excuse me. If I seem a bit stumped, it's
    > because I am. Did you receive this as part of a promotional at a
    > trade show? How did you get this cup holder? Does it have any
    > trademark on it?"
    > CALLER: "It came with my computer. I don't know anything
    > about a promotional. It just has '4X' on it."
    > At this point, the Tech Rep had to mute the caller because he
    > couldn't stand it. He was laughing too hard. The caller had been
    > using the load drawer of the CD-ROM drive as a cup holder and it
    > had snapped it off the drive.

    > 11. A woman called the Canon help desk with a problem with
    > her printer.
    > The tech asked her if she was "running it under windows." The
    > woman responded, "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."

    > 12. And last but not least: TECH SUPPORT: "O.K. Bob, 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, Bob."
    > CUSTOMER: "What do you mean?"
    > TECH SUPPORT: " 'P' on your keyboard, Bob."
    > CUSTOMER: "I'm not going to do that!"
