Have No Internet, Use No Internet

| | Right | July 3, 2009

(We are technical support for a VoIP telephone company, which means they have to have broadband internet for their phone to work.)

Customer: *on the phone* “Sales just sent me to you because I wasn’t sure if what I have is internet.”

Me: “Okay, sir, I can help you determine that. Who is your service through?”

Customer: *names phone company that provides DSL* “It’s so when people call me, they can leave a message.”

Me: “Okay, sir, that would be your answering service. Internet would be another feature you pay $30 to $60 a month for, and they would send you a small box that hooks to your computer.”

Customer: “Computers are evil. I bought one and got rid of it the next day!”

Me: “Our phone service is not going to be right for you, sir. If you’d like we could help you find internet, but without a computer you would be paying only to sustain the phone.”

Customer: “I don’t want no evil internet! Goodbye!” *hangs up*

    I suppose I can see why religious people think the internet is “evil”, since the internet is what lead me to the truth about their vile belief systems. In their minds, that makes it “evil” despite it being their beliefs that are evil.

      There is no good or evil. There is only power, and those too weak to accept it.

        True, true…
