Dell computer - WTF?

I just ordered a Dell computer for home using their online system. They go on with a few questions mostly for marketing purposes but this one had me on the ground in stitches:

Q4. Will the product (s) be used in connection with weapons of mass destruction,i.e., nuclear applications, missile technology, or chemical or biological weapons purposes?
Yes No

I ticked no, but I wonder what would happen if I had ticked yes?!

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

Hahahahahahahahahahaha ROTFL. I think ASIO would've been straight onto you if you did and that's just the entree.

Mate, wait till you ring their tech support. The support is now routed to India and they are more useless than mammaries on a male cow.

Example:
We ring up saying the left mouse button on a laptop isn't working. The touchpad works and the right button works, but not the left. Obvious hardware fault.

"Have you reinstalled the drivers?"
"Have you reinstalled the operating system?"
"Have you run the Dell diagnostics?"

The fact that the left mouse button was detached was a detail they didn't need to know but still. Now we just answer Yes automatically to those questions and get them to send the parts and an engineer quick smart.

We heard that they are on some quota or bonus system where the should try to resolve the issue without sending an engineer out. Fair enough, but FFS, any qualified techie can tell what is hardware and what's not...

I don't know who's stupider, the terrorists who answer these questions truthfully, or the guys who expect them to.
