Complaining Incognito

Me: “You’re through to ****** tech support, can I take your telephone number?”

Customer: “No.”

Me: “Okay, can I take your post code instead?”

Customer: “No.”

Me: “Okay sir, I’m trying to help but I need to bring your account details up in my system.”

Customer, rather angrily: “What the **** do you want my details for? I can’t connect to the internet, you need to sort it out!”

Me: “I will do my best, sir, but like I explained I need to bring up your account details to verify what the problem seems to be.”

Customer, screaming: “That’s it, I’m calling your complaints department. This is ***** ridiculous. I also want to speak to your manager NOW!”

Me: “Sorry sir, I cant do that as you haven’t verified any of your account details.”

Customer: “That’s it, I’m leaving your provider for somebody else!”

Me: “Thanks for calling ***** technical support. Have a nice day!”

(Two minutes later my manager comes over and just bursts out laughing.)

Customer: “I need a fan.”

Me: “What kind of fan?”

Customer: “A fan for where I plug my modem in.”

Me: “Do you have it with you?”

Customer: “Yeah.”

(Customer leaves and returns with the computer. A hair dryer is duct-taped to the power supply, nozzle pointing into where the fan normally sits.)

Me, dumbfounded: “Why is there a hairdryer taped to your computer?”

Customer: “Well, I have to keep it warm, or it will freeze up.”

Me: “Thank you for calling *****, how may I assist you today?”

Customer: “Hi, I need a new computer.”

Me: “I’m sorry? You need a new computer?”

Customer: “Yeah, I just bought this one and it’s no good, it’s been hacked!”

Me: “This is software support. We can’t replace your hardware, but if you describe the problems you’re having I can try to help you fix them.”

Customer: *irritated and sighing* “Some f***ing hacker broke into my computer and put dirty words everywhere! Now I can’t even let my kids use the computer for their homework, because of the obscene language that randomly pops up on the screen!”

Me: “Sounds like a virus, do you have an anti-virus installed?”

Customer: “I have McAfee and I already tried that 10 TIMES! It didn’t even find anything! Everything on this computer is just worthless and I’m sick of–”

Me: “OK sir, please calm down so I can help you. Can you tell me where you are seeing dirty words?”

Customer: “In AOL instant messenger and WordPad. Every time I open one of them it says “ASSHOLE” on the screen!”

Me: “Where?”

Customer: “I don’t know, why does that matter?”

Me: “I’m trying to figure out what’s wrong with your machine, sir. Can you please open WordPad or AIM and tell me where you see that word?”

Customer: *grumbling* “I’m opening instant messenger- there it is! It’s not ‘asshole’ though, it’s ‘anal’- same thing! How do I get rid of this?!”

Me: “Where does it say ‘anal’?”

Customer: “When I click on my friend’s name and the box pops up, it says ‘anal’ right above where you type!”

Me: “Are you sure it says ‘anal’ and not ‘arial’?

Customer: “What the hell is ‘arial’?”

Me: “It’s a font sir; it’s spelled A-R-I-A-L.”

(At this point the customer went silent for about 15 seconds, and then hung up the phone.)

Me: “Thank you for calling C** Technologies, how can I help?”

Customer, very irate: “Yeah! I didn’t pay my internet bill and now its saying my account is suspended and I want to know why!”

Me: “Okay, you didn’t pay your bill, we suspended your account and you would like to know why?”

Customer: “Yes! Why? Why did you suspend it?”

Me: “Alright, let me take a look here…my system shows it suspended the account because you didn’t pay the last bill we sent.”

Customer: “I know I didn’t pay the bill! Have a little f**king sympathy here! Are you customer service??”

Me: “I’m tech support.”

Customer: “Where is customer service at?!?”

Me: “Our billing department handles all our customer service issues, I’ll transfer you down to them.”

Customer: “You’re acting like a real a**hole you know that? You need to have more empathy for people!”

Me, in the most uppity happy-go-lucky voice ever conceived; I almost gagged from bringing so much joy up: “You have yourself a fabulously sunshine-filled day, sir!”

Customer: “WHATS YOUR F**KING NA–” *click*

(Gotta love that transfer button…)
