    Me: “Hi, how can I help you?”

    Customer: “I’m trying to install your program but it keeps quitting during the set up.”

    Me: “Are you getting any error messages?”

    Customer: “No, it just quits and I have to restart the installation.”

    Me: “At what point does it quit?”

    Customer: “Well, it’s on the screen where is says registration code. I hit cancel and then it quits.”

    Me: “In order for the installation process to finish, you need to put in a registration code.”

    Customer: “Can you give me one?”

    Me: “For your program to work, you need to put in the code that comes with it.”

    Customer: “Well, how do I find that?”

    Me: “It would be on a slip of paper inside the box.”

    Customer: “What box?”

    Me: “The box that the CD came in.”

    Customer: “I didn’t get a box. Could you just give me a code?”

    Me: “When you bought the program it came in a box, did you lose the box?”

    Customer: “Oh, I didn’t buy it, I got it from a friend. But I don’t think she bought it either. The CD looks like it was homemade.”

    Me: “… homemade?”

    Customer: “Yeah, the top of the CD has handwriting on it. It’s just like the music CDs she gives to me.”

    Me: “I’m going to have to assume that the person who gave you this CD downloaded the program illegally. I can not provide you with a code to activate the software without a proper purchase.”

    Customer: “So now I can’t use it?”

    Me: “Not without purchasing it.”

    Customer: “But I don’t want to pay for it, I just want to use it!”

    Me: “I’m sorry, but it just won’t work that way.”

    Customer: “Well, what good are you, you lousy b**ch?!” *click*
