      Tech support: That doesn't sound good; I'll make a note.
      Customer: No, wait a minute... I hadn't inserted it yet... it's still on my desk... sorry....


      ===============

      Male customer: Hello... I can't print.
      Tech support: Would you click on "start" for me and...
      Customer: Listen pal; don't start getting technical on me! I¹m not Bill Gates.


      ===============


      Customer: Hi, good afternoon, this is Martha, I can't print. Every time I try, it says 'Can't find printer'. I've even lifted the printer and placed it in front of the monitor, but the computer still says he can't find it...


      ===============


      Customer: I have problems printing in red...
      Tech support: Do you have a color printer?
      Customer: Aaaah...................thank you.


      ===============

      ===============


      Customer: My keyboard is not working anymore.
      Tech support: Are you sure it's plugged into the computer?
      Customer: No. I can't get behind the computer.
      Tech support: Pick up your keyboard and walk 10 paces back.
      Customer:! OK
      Tech support: Did the keyboard come with you?
      Customer: Yes
      Tech support: That means the keyboard is not plugged in. Is there another keyboard?
      Customer: Yes, there's another one here. Ah...that one does work...


      ===============


      Tech support: Your password is the small letter ³a² as in apple, a capital letter V as n Victor, the number 7.
      Customer: Is that 7 in capital letters?


      == =============


      Customer: can't get on the Internet.
      Tech support: Are you sure you used the right password?
      Customer: Yes, I'm sure. I saw my colleague do it.

      Customer: Five stars.


      ===============


      Tech support: What anti-virus program do you use?

      Customer: Oh, sorry...Internet Explorer.


      ===============


      Customer: I have a huge problem. A friend has placed a screen saver on my computer, but every time I move the mouse, it disappears.


      ===============


      Tech support: How may I help you?
      Customer: I'm writing my first e-mail.
      Tech support: OK, and what seems to be the problem?
      Customer: Well, I have the letter 'a' in the address, but how do I get the circle around it?


      ===============


      A woman customer called the Canon help desk with a problem with her printer.
      Tech support: Are you running it under windows?
      Customer: "No, my desk is next to the door, but that is a good point. The man sitting in the cubicle next to me is under a window, and his printer is working fine."


      ===============


      And last but not least...

      Tech support: "Okay 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 :eek:
      You don't stop laughing because you grow old,

      I know this is an old thread, but I've just seen it. I don't feel so bad about my computer skills now.

      Thanks for the smiles. :)

      I didn't see this thread until just now.

      i used to work for BigPond tech support and calls like the above were common.

      Like:

      Cust: I can't get on the internet.

      Me: Ok, have a look at your modem how many lights are showing on it?

      Cust: None.

      Me: Is the modem turned on please check

      Cust: Oh, ah. It's on and working now.........

      This was just one of the common things we would get.

      Tech Support, may I help you?"

      "Yes, well, I'm having trouble with WordPerfect."

      TS: "What sort of trouble?"

      "Well, I was just typing along, and all of a sudden the words went away."

      TS: "Went away?"

      "They disappeared."

      TS: "Hmm. So what does your screen look like now?"

      "Nothing."

      TS: "Nothing?"

      "It's blank; it won't accept anything when I type."

      TS: "Are you still in WordPerfect, or did you get out?"

      "How do I tell?"

      TS: "Can you see the C: prompt on the screen?"

      "What's a sea-prompt?"

      TS: "Never mind, can you move your cursor around the screen?"

      "There isn't any cursor: I told you, it won't accept anything I type."

      TS: "Does your monitor have a power indicator?"

      "What's a monitor?"

      TS: "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?"

      "I don't know."

      TS: "Well, then look on the back of the monitor and find where the power cord goes into it. Can you see that?"

      "Yes, I think so."

      TS: "Great. Follow the cord to the plug, and tell me if it's plugged into the wall."

      "Yes, it is."

      TS: "When you were behind the monitor, did you notice that there were two cables plugged into the back of it, not just one?"

      "No."

      TS: "Well, there are. I need you to look back there again and find the other cable."

      "Okay, here it is."

      TS: "Follow it for me, and tell me if it's plugged securely into the back of your computer."

      "I can't reach."

      TS: "Uh huh. Well, can you see if it is?"

      "No."

      TS: "Even if you maybe put your knee on something and lean way over?"

      "Oh, it's not because I don't have the right angle -- it's because it's dark."

      TS: "Dark?"

      "Yes, -the office light is off, and the only light I have is coming in from the window."

      TS: "Well, turn on the office light then."

      "I can't."

      TS: "No? Why not?"

      "Because there's a power failure."

      TS: "A power... A power failure? Aha, Okay, we've got it licked now. Do you still have the boxes and manuals and packing stuff your computer came in?"

      "Well, yes, I keep them in the closet."

      TS: "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."

      "Really? Is it that bad?"

      TS: "Yes, I'm afraid it is."

      "Well, all right then, I suppose. What do I tell them?"

      TS: "Tell them you're too stupid to own a computer."
