    This was Probably posted before, friend sent it to me in a email, first time reading it, pretty funny. Best part is it really happened. [IMG]

    Actual dialogue of a former WordPerfect Customer Support
    employee with a caller:

    Customer Support: "Ridge Hall computer assistant;
    may I help you?"

    Caller: "Yes, well, I'm having trouble with

    CS: "What sort of trouble?"

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

    CS: "Went away?"

    C: "They disappeared."

    CS: "Hmm. So what does your screen look like now?"

    C: "Nothing."

    CS: "Nothing?"

    C: "It's blank; it won't accept anything when I

    CS: "Are you still in WordPerfect, or did you get

    C: "How do I tell?"

    CS: "Can you see the C: prompt on the screen?"

    C: "What's a sea-prompt?"

    CS: "Never mind. Can you move the cursor around on
    the screen?"

    C: "There isn't any cursor, I told you, it won't
    accept anything I type."

    CS: "Does your monitor have a power indicator?"

    C: "What's a monitor?"

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

    C: "I don't know."

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

    C: "Yes, I think so."

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

    C: ".......Yes, it is."

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

    C: "No."

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

    C: ".......Okay, here it is."

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

    "I can't reach."

    CS: "Uh huh. Well, can you see if it is?"

    C: "No."

    CS: "Even if you maybe put your knee on something
    and lean way over?"

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

    CS: "Dark?"

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

    CS: "Well, turn on the office light then."

    C: "I can't."

    CS: "No? Why not?"

    C: "Because there's a power outage."

    CS: "A power... A power outage? Ah, Okay, we've
    got it licked now. Do you still have the boxes and
    manuals and packing stuff your computer came in?"

    C: "Well, yes, I keep them in the closet."

    CS: "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."

    C: "Really? Is it that bad?"

    CS: "Yes, I'm afraid it is."

    C: "Well, all right then, I suppose. What do I
    tell them?"

    CS: "Tell them you're too stupid to own a
