    It is tough in Tech Support.....

    It is tough in Tech Support.....
    Here are some conversations, which had (rumour has it) actually happened between help-desk people and their customers


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Customer: "I have Microsoft Exploder."
    Customer: "How do I print my voicemail?"

    Customer: "I don't need any of that SQL stuff - I Just want a database!"

    Tech Support: "What does the screen say now?"
    Customer: "It says, 'Hit ENTER when ready'."
    Tech Support: "Well?"
    Customer: "How do I know when it's ready?"

    Customer: "I have a long distance modem."

    Customer: "I don't have a space bar.

    Customer: "You've got to fix my computer. I urgently need to print a document, but the computer won't boot properly."
    Tech Support: "What does it say?"
    Customer: "Something about an error and non-system disk."
    Tech Support: "Look at your machine. Is there a floppy inside?"
    Customer: "No, but there's a sticker saying there's an Intel inside."

    Tech Support: "Just call us back if there's a problem. We're open 24 hours."
    Customer: "Is that Eastern time?"

    Tech Support: "Ok, now click your left mouse button."
    Customer: (silence) "But I only have one mouse."

    Customer: "Excuse me can I use this disk? It has a hole in it."

    Tech Support: "Do you have 3 1/2 inch diskettes?"
    Customer: "No, I only have 3 of them."

    Tech Support: "I need you to right-click on the Open Desktop."
    Customer: "Ok."
    Tech Support: "Did you get a pop-up menu?"
    Customer: "No."
    Tech Support: "Ok. Right click again. Do you see a pop-up menu?"
    Customer: "No."
    Tech Support: "Ok, sir. Can you tell me what you have done up until this point?"
    Customer: "Sure, you told me to write 'click' and I wrote 'click'."

    Customer: "Now what do I do?"
    Tech Support: "What is the prompt on the screen?"
    Customer: "It's asking for 'Enter Your Last Name.'"
    Tech Support: "Ok, so type in your last name."
    Customer: "How do you spell that?"

    Customer: "I received the software update you sent, but I am still getting the same error message."
    Tech Support: "Did you install the update?"
    Customer: "No. Oh, am I supposed to install it to get it to work?"

    Customer: "I'm having trouble installing Microsoft Word."
    Tech Support: "Tell me what you've done."
    Customer: "I typed 'A:SETUP'."
    Tech Support: "Ma'am, remove the disk and tell me what it says."
    Customer: "It says '[PC manufacturer] Restore and Recovery disk'."
    Tech Support: "Insert the MS Word set-up disk."
    Customer: "What?"
    Tech Support: "Did you buy MS word?"
    Customer: "No ..."

    Customer: "Do I need a computer to use your software?"
    Tech Support: ?@#$?

    Tech Support: "Ok, in the bottom left hand side of the screen, can you see the 'OK' button displayed?"
    Customer: "Wow. How can you see my screen from there?"

    Tech Support: "What type of computer do you have?"
    Customer: "A white one."

    Customer: "I'm going to be using Windows NT. Should I get the Server or Workstation version?"
    Tech Support: "Well, are you using it as a workstation or as a server?"
    Customer: "A server. So, which one do I get?"
    Tech Support: "The server version perhaps?"
    Customer: "Which one is that?"
    Tech Support: "Windows NT Server."
    Customer: "Ok, thanks."

    Tech Support: "Type 'A:' at the prompt."
    Customer: "How do you spell that?"

    Customer: "I can't log in to my account."
    Tech Support: "Ok, let's look at your configuration."
    Customer: "Ok...but I know that my User ID is case sensitive."
    Tech Support: "Yes it is. Ok, what does it say in the 'User ID' field?"
    Customer: "Like I said, 'Case Sensitive'."

    Tech Support: "What's on your screen right now?"
    Customer: "A stuffed animal that my boyfriend got me at the grocery store."

    Tech Support: "What operating system are you running?"
    Customer: "Pentium."
    Our destiny is to endure all hardships that we encounter along the path to what we perceive to be true and worthwhile !
