Chuckle of the Day – Tech Support

by Sherry Riter in Chuckle

Tech Support

Phone call to Tech Support….

On one call, the caller seemed to be taking an inordinately long time to complete each instruction she was given.

Agent: Ma’am, I can’t help noticing that every time I give you an instruction, it takes a really long time before you get back to me. Is your computer that slow?

Caller: Oh, no, it’s just the stupid, stupid design of this computer. Every time I want to click something, I have to unplug the keyboard to plug in the mouse. And then every time I want to use the keyboard again, I have to unplug the mouse. Because there’s only one jack.

Agent: Ma’am, you do realize that there’s a jack on the keyboard itself? You’re supposed to plug the mouse into the keyboard, and the keyboard into the computer.

Caller: Are YOU KIDDING ME!? Oh, wait a minute—yes, I see it now! Oh, holy cow. That’s going to be so much easier!

Agent: Just out of curiosity, how long have you been using your computer that way?

Caller: Six weeks!

hhaha love the picture, its a real Epic Fail moment.

the funniest tech support call was the guy who thought the CD drive was a coffee-cup holder and he called up tech support to complain that it had broken so easily.

I think she made a poor choice in her computer purchase. I want lots of ports for lots of stuff. LOL
