Well, how about a little tech-support question humor? Let’s see if I can remember it.
Well, there was phone tech support member working for a company (Microsoft?), we’ll just call him “Tech”. He received a call from and elderly woman who’s computer wouldn’t turn on. In the end, it got him fired. Below is what I remember from the transcript.
TECH: What seems to be the problem?
CALLER: My computer won’t turn on.
TECH: Have you tried the power button?
CALLER: Of course.
TECH: Is the power connected?
*the TECH then went through several PC-related things and neither worked.*
TECH: Do you have the original box to send this back?
CALLER: It’s in the attic.
TECH: Can you get it and make sure it’s the right one?
CALLER: It’s a bit hard to see the box.
TECH: How come?
CALLER: The lights aren’t on.
TECH: Turn them on.
CALLER: I can’t, the power went out 30 minutes ago.
*The TECH then went into numerous profanities that got him fired. Such is the frustration of all techs.*
