Joke 795

27 May

Actual calls to computer technical support reps:

Customer: I’m trying to connect to the Internet with your CD, but it just doesn’t work. What am I doing wrong?
Tech support: OK, you’ve got the CD in the CD drive, right?
Customer: Yeah…
Tech support: And what sort of computer are you using?
Customer: Computer? Oh no, I haven’t got a computer. It’s in the CD player and all I get is weird noises. Listen…


Tech support: What kind of computer do you have?
Customer: A white one.


Customer: 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 into the computer yet…it’s still on my desk…sorry…


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.  


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?

    sometimes things do seem to be a bit far fetched and you can hardly believe what people do. or cannot do .but it is so true.. I am a testimony to that..maybe not in that context but it does confuse me sometimes…or maybe I confuse the computer. That could be the answer!

    When I first moved to Germany, I could not for the life of me figure out how to do the @ symbol. I could see it mocking me from the Q key, but had no idea how to make it appear on my scrren. Turns out you have to use ALT-Gr. *Sigh*.

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
