    Talking This is something funny!!!

    Tech Humor


    A woman called the Canon help desk, about a problem
    she was having with her printer.
    The tech asked her if she was "running it under
    Windows." The woman responded, "No, my
    desk is next to the door. But that's a good point.
    The man sitting in the cubicle next to me is under a
    window, and his is working just fine."

    Tech Support: "OK Bob, let's press the control and
    escape keys at the same time. That
    brings up a task list in the middle of the screen.
    Now type the letter 'P' to bring up the
    Program Manager."
    Customer: "I don't have a 'P'."
    Tech Support: "On your keyboard, Bob."
    Customer: "What do you mean?"
    Tech Support: "'P' on your keyboard, Bob."
    Customer: "I'm not going to do that!"
    The following conversation was overheard in a
    computer shop:
    Customer: "I'd like a mouse mat, please."
    Salesperson: "Certainly sir, we've got a large

    I once received a fax with a note on the bottom, to
    fax the document back to the sender when
    I was finished with it. He said he needed to keep it.
    Customer in computer shop: "Can you copy the
    Internet onto this disk for me?"
    I work for a local ISP. Frequently we receive phone
    calls that start something like this:
    Customer: "Hi. Is this the Internet?"
    Customer: "So that'll get me connected to the
    Internet, right?"
    Tech Support: "Yeah."
    Customer: "And that's the latest version of the
    Internet, right?"
    Tech Support: "Uhh...uh...uh...yeah."
    Customer: "My computer crashed!"
    Tech Support: "It crashed?"
    Customer: "Yeah, it won't let me play my game."
    Tech Support: "All right, hit Control-Alt-Delete to
    Customer: "No, it didn't crash - it crashed."
    Tech Support: "Huh?"
    Customer: "I crashed my game. That's what I said
    before. I crashed my spaceship and now
    it doesn't work."
    Tech Support: "Click on 'File,' then 'New Game.'"
    Customer: [pause] "Wow! How'd you learn how to do
    I got a call from a woman who said that her laser
    printer was having problems: the bottom
    half of her printed sheets were coming out blurry.
    It seemed strange that the printer was smearing
    only the bottom half.
    I walked her through the basics, then went over and
    printed out a test sheet. It printed fine. I
    asked her to print a sheet, so she sent a job to the
    As the paper started coming out, she yanked it out
    and showed it to me.
    I told her to wait until the paper came out on its
    Problem solved.
    I had been doing Tech Support for Hewlett-Packard's
    DeskJet division for about a month
    when I had a customer call with a problem I just
    couldn't solve. She could not print yellow.
    All the other colors would print fine, which truly
    baffled me because the only true colors are
    cyan, magenta, and yellow. For instance, green is a
    combination of cyan and yellow, but
    green printed fine. Every color of the rainbow
    printed fine except for yellow.
    I had the customer change ink cartridges. I had the
    customer delete and reinstall the drivers.
    Nothing worked. I asked my coworkers for help; they
    offered no new ideas. After over two
    hours of troubleshooting, I was about to tell the
    customer to send the printer in to us for
    repair when she asked quietly, "Should I try
    printing on a piece of white paper instead of
    this yellow paper?"
    A man attempting to set up his new printer called
    the printer's Tec support number,
    complaining about the error message: "Can't find the
    On the phone, the man said he even held the printer
    up in front of
    the screen, but the computer still couldn't find it.
    And another user was all confused about why the
    cursor always moved in the opposite
    direction from the movement of the mouse. She also
    complained that the buttons were
    difficult to depress. She was very embarrassed when
    we asked her to rotate the mouse so
    the tail pointed away from her.
    This guy calls in to complain that he gets an
    "Access Denied" message every time he logs in.
    It turned out he was typing his username and
    password in capital letters.
    Tech Support: "Ok, let's try once more, but use
    lower case letters."
    Customer: "Uh, I only have capital letters on my
    My friend was on duty in the main computer lab on a
    quiet afternoon.
    He noticed a young woman sitting in front of one of
    the workstations with her arms crossed
    across her chest, staring at the screen. After about
    15 minutes he noticed that she was still in
    the same position, only now she was impatiently
    tapping her foot. He asked if she needed
    help and she replied
    "It's about time! I pressed the F1 (help) button
    over twenty minutes ago!"

    It was on

    Once while doing Tech Support for Dell Computers, I received a call from an elderly gentleman
    inquiring about his e-mail. It seems that his grand-daughter encourged him to get a computer
    so he could receive e-mail. The geltleman went on to explain that his new Dell arrived safely, & he had opened all the boxes. . . examined the contents & could find nothing labeled "E-Mail"
    The day went downhill from there!!

    Well maybe you should include the source ie: URL to site.
    It's just better that you include it so that you don't get accused of cut 'n pasting to get your post count up..
