The realm of Technical Support is there to provide expert assistance to those who are not so tech-savvy. Although they still expect you to know what a computer is, and how to turn it on, and to know that you can’t ‘fix the internet’ because it isn’t pretty enough. You have been warned…

Laptop Flop, Part 10

| Seattle, WA, USA | Bizarre, Technology

(I’m at a store which sells containers and furniture. They have a bunch of props to go on top of their items which are not for sale. I see a girl and boy looking at a fake laptop on a desk.)

Boy: “That’s fake.”

Girl: “I know.”

Boy: “It’s fake.”

Girl: “I know.”

Boy: “Why are you trying to turn it on then?”

Girl: “I’m enjoying my life.”

Should Be A Customer Screening Process

| NH, USA | Extra Stupid, Technology

User: “Well, if I upgrade to that monitor arm, what happens to the little thing that’s under my computer?”

Me: *confused* “What little thing that’s under your computer?”

User: “This thing.” *user taps her computer*

Me: “That is your computer.”

Other IT Guy: “Did she just say that?”

User: “Well, the screens and the keyboard are the only pieces that I need anyway.”

The Internet Loves Stories About Them, Too

| Dallas, TX, USA | Bizarre, Crazy Requests, Technology

Customer: “Excuse me, ma’am, where would I go to complain to a manager?”

Me: “What is the issue? Maybe I can help?”

Customer: “Forget it. I’ll just go complain on the Internet.”

Me: “Are you sure? It won’t be but a couple of seconds.”

Customer: “Yes, I’m sure. The Internet loves this stuff.”

Me: *gives him a weird look* “Well, okay then. Have a good day!”

(I later tell my manager what happened, and he just laughs.)

Manager: “Okay, I’m sure he’ll get real far with that. One less dumb-a** I have to deal with.”
