October Theme Of The Month: Halloween!

Spyware Is Strength

| South Carolina, USA | Technology

(I run my own computer repair business out of my home. A customer has just arrived to pick up their computer, and I am explaining what I have done.)

Customer: “That didn’t take long. I expected you to have my computer for a few more days.”

Me: “I didn’t have to do much. You had two nasty viruses and some spyware to remove, but everything is good as new now.”

Customer: “What? You removed my spyware? No!”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Customer: “But my computer can’t run without spyware! It keeps Big Brother from watching!”

(She storms out without paying, and I decide to them her go. Not surprisingly, they come back a few weeks later after gunking up their computer again!)
