Here’s the second portion of the stories sent my way about computer skills, or lake thereof.

Customer: My keyboard isn’t working.

Help Desk: Are you sure it’s plugged into the computer?

Customer: I’m not sure, I can’t get behind the computer.

Help Desk: Pick up the keyboard and walk ten paces back.

Customer: Okay.

Help Desk: Did the keyboard come with you?

Customer: Yes.

Help Desk: That means the keyboard isn’t plugged in.

Props to this IT guy. Way to tell the fucking idiot they’re a fucking idiot without saying “fucking idiot.”

Help Desk: Your password is lower-case a as in apple, capital V as in Victor, and the number 7.

Customer: Is 7 capital or lower-case?

“Um, it’s lower-case. Make sure you put it in correctly.”

Customer: I can’t log into my computer.

Help Desk: Are you sure you used the correct password?

Customer: Yes, I’m sure I did. I saw my friend type it in.

Help Desk: Can you tell me what the password is?

Customer. Yes, seven dots.

Eventually, they find out his password is simply, “password.”

Help Desk: Can you tell me what anti-virus program you use?

Customer: Netscape.

Help Desk: That’s not an anti-virus program.

Customer: Oh, sorry. Internet Explorer.

Something tells me this is the same guy that thinks an Apple computer is a mini fruit basket.

Customer: I have a huge problem. A friend put a screen saver on my computer, but every time I move the mouse, it disappears.

God only knows what happened when the IT guy told them it was called “wallpaper.”

Customer: I’m having trouble with my email.

Help Desk: What exactly is the problem?

Customer: I have a letter ‘a’ in the address, but I don’t know how to get the circle around it.

This dipshit might just want to stick with postal mail.

Customer: I’m having a problem with my printer.

Help Desk: Are you running it under Windows?

Customer: No,  my desk is next to the door.

“That must be the problem. Move your printer under a bright window and it should work.”
