It’s Monday morning and hurricane Sandy is gaining force! We're all thinking of you on the east coast. The Horns pulled out a win during the very last seconds on Saturday (whew!!). As you’re settling in with your first cup of coffee here’s some tech humor to start your week that I think you'll enjoy.
This is a true story from the WordPerfect helpline. Needless to say the help desk employee was fired; however, he/she is currently suing the WordPerfect organization for "Termination without Cause".
Actual dialogue of a former WordPerfect Customer Support employee:
"Ridge Hall computer assistant; may I help you?" Client: "Yes, well, I'm having trouble with WordPerfect." Tech: "What sort of trouble?" Client: "Well, I was just typing along, and all of a sudden the words went away." Tech: "Went away?" Client: "They disappeared." Tech: "Hmm. So what does your screen look like now?" Client: "Nothing." Tech: "Nothing?" Client: "It's blank; it won't accept anything when I type." Tech: "Are you still in WordPerfect, or did you get out?" Client: "How do I tell?" Tech: "Can you see the C: prompt on the screen?" Client:"What's a sea-prompt?" Tech: "Never mind. Can you move the cursor around on the screen?" Client: "There isn't any cursor: I told you, it won't accept anything I type." Tech: "Does your monitor have a power indicator?" Client: "What's a monitor?" Tech: "It's the thing with the screen on it that looks like a TV. Does it have a little light that tells you when it's on?" Client: "I don't know." Tech: "Well, then look on the back of the monitor and find where the power cord goes into it. Can you see that?" Client: "Yes, I think so." Tech: "Great. Follow the cord to the plug, and tell me if it's plugged into the wall." Client: ".......Yes, it is." Tech: "When you were behind the monitor, did you notice that there were two cables plugged into the back of it, not just one?" Client: "No." Tech: "Well, there are. I need you to look back there again and find the other cable." Client: "....... Okay, here it is." Tech: "Follow it for me, and tell me if it's plugged securely into the back of your Computer." Client: "I can't reach." Tech: "Uh huh. Well, can you see if it is?" Client: "No." Tech: "Even if you maybe put your knee on something and lean way over?" Client: "Oh, it's not because I don't have the right angle - it's because it's dark." Tech: "Dark?" Client: "Yes...the office light is off, and the only light I have is coming in from the window." Tech: "Well, turn on the office light then." Client: "I can't." Tech: "No? Why not?" Client: "Because there's a power outage." Tech: "A power... A power outage? Aha, Okay, we've got it licked now. Do you still have the boxes and manuals and packing stuff your computer came in?" Client: "Well, yes, I keep them in the closet." Tech: "Good. Go get them, and unplug your system and pack it up just like it was when you got it. Then take it back to the store you bought it from." Client: "Really? Is it that bad?" Tech: "Yes, I'm afraid it is." Client: "Well, allright then, I suppose. What do I tell them?" Tech: "Tell them you're too @#*?! stupid to own a computer!"
