    Hello, Can't Crash Computers, may I help you?

    Yes. Please transfer me to your legal department.

    I'm afraid our attorney isn't here in the store, can I help you with something?

    You better. I'm going to be sending you my hospital bill and you have to replace the monitor for my computer.

    What happened, sir?

    I was using the Internet while I was taking a bath.

    In the bath?

    I had a table in the bathroom. But the mouse fell in the water and when I went to get it, the monitor cable got tangled up. It fell in too and I got terribly shocked!

    And you want us to pay for it?

    Just get me in touch with your legal people. They'll handle it.
