  • Funny but True

    An American friend sent me this last night;enjoy!

    "This has got to be one of the funniest I've heard of in a long time. I
    think this guy should have been promoted, not fired. This is a true story from the WordPerfect Helpline which was transcribed from a recording monitoring the customer care department. Needless to say, the Help Desk employee was fired however, he is currently suing the WordPerfect organization for "Termination without cause." This is the actual dialogue of a former WordPerfect Customer Support employee (now I know why they record these conversations) starts here:


    Employee --"Rich Hall computer assistance; may I help you?"

    Customer --" Yes, well, I'm having trouble with WordPerfect ."

    Employee --"What sort of trouble?"

    Customer --" Well, I was just typing along, and all of a sudden the
    words went away."

    Employee -- " Went away?"
    Customer --" They disappeared."
    Employee --"Hmmm. So what does your screen look like now?"
    Customer --" Nothing."

    Employee --"Nothing?"


    Customer --" It's a blank; it won' t accept anything when I type."

    Employee --"Are you still in WordPerfect, or did you get out?"

    Customer --" How do I tell?"


    Employee --"Can you see the 'C:' prompt on the screen?"

    Customer --" What is a sea prompt?"

    Employee --"Never mind, can you move your cursor around the screen? "


    Customer --" There isn't any cursor; I told you, it won't accept
    anything I type."

    Employee --"Does your monitor have a power indicator?"

    Customer --" What's a monitor?"

    Employee --"It's the thing with the screen on it that looks like a TV. Does it have little light that tells you when it's on?"

    Customer --" I don't know."

    Employee --"Well, then look on the back of the monitor and find
    where the power cord goes into it. Can you see that?"

    Customer --" Yes, I think so."

    Employee --"Great. Follow the cord to the plug, and tell me if it's
    plugged into the wall."

    Customer --" Yes, it is."

    Employee --"When you were behind the monitor, did you notice that there were two cables plugged into the back of it, not just one?"

    Customer --" No."

    Employee --"Well, there are. I need you to look back there again and find the other cable."

    Customer --" Okay, here it is."

    Employee --"Follow it for me, and tell me if it's plugged securely into the back of your computer. "

    Customer --" I can't reach."

    Employee --"Uh huh. Well, can you see if it is?"

    Customer --" No."

    Employee --"Even if you maybe put your knee on something and lean way over?"

    Customer --" Oh, it's not because I don't have the right angle it's
    because it's dark."

    Employee --"Dark?"

    Customer --" Yes - the office light is off, and the only light I have is
    coming in from the window."

    Employee --"Well, turn on the office light then."

    Customer --" I can't."

    Employee --" No? Why not?"

    Customer --" Because there's a power failure."

    Employee --"A power....a power failure?.... Aha, Okay, we've got it
    licked now. Do you still have the boxes and manuals and packing
    stuff your computer came in?"

    Customer --" Well, yes, I keep them in the closet."

    Employee --"Good...Go get them, and unplug your system and pack it up just like it was when you got it. Then take it back to the store you bought it from."

    Customer --"Really? Is it that bad?"

    Employee --"Yes, I'm afraid it is."

    Customer --"Well, all right then, I suppose. What do I tell them?"

    Employee --"Tell them you're too stupid to own a computer."


    Made me giggle - it's a bit like those car insurance ckaims Jasper Carrott loves!
