    You may think this a travesty

    But take a closer look

    If deciphered, the message contains many hidden messages about the universe and the meaning of life in general. I won't spoil it for you, but really concentrate on the words...oh yes, it's a fucking goldmine of knowledge

    yeah people are morons. used to do tech support until i got sick. the only thing worse than the idiot customers was the overbearing management breathing down our necks and spying on us at every given opportunity. it was ok when i started at the place but it got to the point of absolute ridiculous where i was basically forced to go on sick leave or be fired.

    While that's bad, being in tech support myself, I've seen and heard much much worse.

    Thats an everyday thing for me.

    Me:"What version of Windows are you running?"
    Customer: "Internet Explorer" or "Dell"

    Hell, I had a guy the other night, said he disconnected his cable modem completely, wanted to know why he still had icons on his screen.

    Me: I need you to press the Start button
    Customer: Alright, I pressed it and my screen went dark.
    Me: Um. Okay sir, I don't think that was exactly the "start" button I had in mind. Could you turn your computer back on please?

    I hate the ones that when you tell them to "right click" on something, they constantly ask "right or left?" each time you tell them to click on something after that first one.

    I get allot of people that think their modem is a router. or i ask them to make a test call and they say no dial tone, only to say that the phone is unplugged.

    Yeah, when someone tells me that they have a router, I ask for the name brand on the box. Or they tell me that they don't have a router, I check the IP, and then they say "well, I have that wireless box".
