    Love Thy (Unwittingly Generous) Neighbor

    | Adelaide, Australia | Uncategorized

    Customer: My wireless network’s down. The modem says it’s connected but none of us can browse.

    Me: “Can you ping the modem? … No? Ok, I’ll need you to connect to the modem with a cable, and log into the configuration page. Great. Now click on the ‘wireless’ tab.”

    Customer: “There’s no wireless tab.”

    Me: “What model of modem do you have?”

    Customer: “An Open 624.”

    Me: “Not the 624W?”

    Customer: “No, I told you, the 624.”

    Me: “Um…that is not a wireless capable modem.”

    Customer: *exploding* “Don’t bulls**t me! You sold me this piece of crap! It had wireless until yesterday and now it doesn’t!”

    Me: “Did any of your neighbours move out?”

    Customer: “What the h–…Oh.”

    Me: “Shall I put you through to the Modem Sales department?”
