    A site thats tooo big

    I was calling to sign up with a new DSL provider. When the guy asked what operating system I was using, I said, "Linux." I was put on hold for five minutes, and then a supervisor came back and told me, "You can't use Linux to connect to the Internet. It's a hacker tool, anyway." I almost fell out of my chair.
    LOL, thats pretty sad. Funny, but sad. THeres this and lots more that I found at http://www.rinkworks.com/stupid/ The site is really big and will probably keep you occupied for a long time. Ok, ok, it isn't all funny, but much of it is. Go through the site, you'll find things you like.
    Customer: "How do I print my voicemail?"
    hehe
    Her: "Yes, but on my Mac they were all over here on the right."
    Me: "Well, by default, Windows arranges the columns on the left side."
    Her: "But I'm right handed!"
    LOL, thats one funny secretary.
    A while ago I was received a call from a woman who said that Eudora Pro was showing her password. I found this to be strange, because when you type it in your password in Eudora, it displays asterisks. So when I went over to her office and looked at her desktop. She had renamed the Eudora Pro icon with her password.
    Now SHE needs to visit a security site. Comb through the site! Enjoy!

    Nice to see that ignorance is still alive and well

    Stupidity at its best.

    Me: "What operating system are you running?"
    Student: "Hunh?"
    Me: "Do you have a Mac or a PC?"
    Student: "Um, I don't know."
    Me: "Ok. What does the screen look like?"
    Student: "It's yellow."
    Me: "Ok. What does it say on the computer CPU?"
    Student: "What's that?"
    Me: "The big grey box."
    Student: "It doesn't say anything."
    Me: "Never mind that...do you have a little 'Start' button at the bottom of the monitor?"
    Student: "Monitor?"
    Me: "The thing that looks like a TV sceen sitting on the grey box."
    Student: "Oh! That! No. No start button."
    Me: "Ok. Is there a little apple symbol anywhere on the screen?"
    Student: (very puzzled) "Why would I have fruit on my computer?"

    I really got pissed about people who didn't like me because i was using linux. I once read a letter about a father who explained how to find out if your kid is a hacker. The first thing he mentioned was linux "acting like a parasite and eating all your harddisk memory. This is one of the most dangerous hacking tools and even illegal to have on your pc." I lost the letter and I think it was writen in a bit more better english
