True story from a Tech Support Representative
Caller: “Hello, Is this tech support ? ”

Tech: “Yes, It is. How may I help you ?”

Caller: “The cup holder on my PC is broken and I am within my warranty period. How do I go about getting that fixed ?”

Tech: “Did you say a Cup holder ? ”

Caller: “Yes ! it is attached to the front of my computer”

Tech: “Please excuse me If I seem a bit stumped, It’s because I am. Did you received this as part of a promotional, at a trade show ?”

Caller: “It came with my computer, I don’t know anything about a promotion, It just has 4X on it.”

At this point the tech rep had to mute the caller because he couldn’t stand it He was laughing too high. The caller had been Using the load drawer of CD/DVD drive as a cup holder and snapped it off the computer.

Tech Support : “Did you get a pop-up menu?”

Customer : “No.”

Tech Support : “Ok. Right click again. Do you see a pop-up menu?”

Customer : “No.”

Tech Support : “Ok, sir. Can you tell me what you have done up until this point?”

Customer : “Sure, you told me to write ‘click’ and I wrote ‘click’.”


A woman writes to IT Technical Support:

Dear Tech Support,

Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and I noticed a distinct slowdown in the overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0. In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5, and then installed undesirable programs such as NEWS 5.0, MONEY 3.0 and FOOTBALLΒ 4.1 . Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system.

Please note that I have tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail.

What can I do?


Frustrated Housewife

Here is the reply she received:

Dear Madam,

First, keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system. Please enter command: ithoughtyoulovedme. html and try to download Tears 6.2 and do not forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update.

If that application works as designed, Husband1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5.. However, remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Silence 2.5 or Beer 6.1.

Please note that Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will download the Snoring Loudly Beta.

Whatever you do, DO NOT under any circumstances install Mother-In-Law 1.0 (it runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources.) In addition, please do not attempt to reinstall the Boyfriend 5.0 program. These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0.

In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance. We recommend: Cooking 3.0 and Hot Looks 7.7.

Good Luck!

  1. laughing so hard, I woke the dog from his nap! I loved this!

    In my day to day job, it’s my responsibility to inform others how to use their computers properly, or should I say a program on a website. Some older folks have issues with this, as well as younger. And I have encountered the second one many times….

  2. Hi, this is so funny. A tech support desk person told me once he had a call from a man who said “I have moved the mouse thing right to the edge of the mat but it won’t reach the cross to close the screen, do I need a mat the same size as the screen to make it work?” I am sure there are many real ones like this that people call in. Thank you for making me smile. πŸ˜‡

  3. Ye gads, I could have been one of those callers.

    It reminds me of the time I called the plumber because my bathtub wasn’t draining. Turns out I had the lever up, which meant the plug was down. He just looked at me.

  4. Hi Don, hysterical. Hubby is an IT support guy and was familiar with your CD/DVD cup holder. The write click made hum chuckle, but he is still rolling on the floor with the Husband 1 programme and applications (mine are already installed by the way, though I have the Husband 2 model as Husband 1 was not compatible with my software). πŸ™‚
