HAHAHA... That site will keep me amused for a while!!

Tech Support: "Move the cursor onto the button that says 'Next'."
Customer: "Ok...ok...come on, move over there...come on come on comeoncomeoncomeon...DAMMIT, I went past it! Ok, get back there, come on you stupid thing...come one...OK! OK, I GOT IT ON THERE! IT'S ON THE BUTTON!!!"
Tech Support: (face in hands) "Now press the button on the mouse.
Customer: "Nothing happens."
Tech Support: "Are you pressing the right button or the left button?"
Customer: "How am I supposed to know which one is the right one to press?"
Tech Support: "Not right as in 'correct;' right as in 'the opposite of left.'"
Customer: "Oh. Yes, I'm pressing the right one."
Tech Support: "You need to press the left one."
Customer: "But I'm left-handed, and I want to press the other one."

"I work for Iomega tech support. One day, when I was answering the AOL message board questions, I ran across a letter complaining that this person's zip drive had ejected a zip disk clear across the room and hit her dog in the eye. The dog supposedly lost vision in that eye and wanted Iomega to pay for the vet bill. I wrote back asking for a picture of the injury. I got back a picture of a dog wearing a pirate patch."

that shit cracked me up

There are so many, but so little time, I have only read through the paranoia ones at this stage, and they are bloody hilarious. :rofl:

When I was doing work experience for education qld as a systems technition, we were called 300km, only to find out the reason why the person's computer wouldn't start was because their UPS wasn't turned on.

I spent the next fifteen minutes re-constructing the carefully crafted setup for this lady's unique computer.


Tech Support: "All right. Now, are you ready to click 'OK'?"
Customer: "Yes."
Tech Support: "Great. Now click 'OK'."
Pause.


Customer: "I clicked 'Cancel'."
And people wonder why my mouse pad has a target on it labeled "BANG HEAD HERE."

all that stuff on that site is not uncommon, where i work i do a lot of tech support and sometimes you just won't to reach through the phone and put some of them out of their missery. There have been many time's when i have to stop myself from going insane and abusing some people. Some people should be banned from ever trying to use a computer again. For example one of the common problems are trying to get people to know the difference between the office packages and windows, no matter how easily or slowly you explain it there is no hope. I say to them what version of windows are you running and they say windows 97. The funny thing is they try to argue the point with you about it. That is one of the simpler ones.

What would make that worse is although the client you would have to deal with is clearly wrong on a matter, they are certain they are right and will argue the case

How many have called asking where the any key is? :)

Friends say I should work in IT. I could probably get a job in basic helpdesk - I have no formal training in IT, nor experience, but have a bit of computer knowledge - I make up my own PCs and keep them running OK. But I doubt I'd last long in IT as I'd go nuts and yell abuse down the phone after the 20th time explaining how to fix the same problem again and again - to the one person.

I keep that in mind if I ever need to call my ISP when the connection is down and have exhausted the usual fixes at my end. It's the worst thing when you are absolutely certain you are right to find out you are........... wrong. It's much better to keep yourself open to errors on your part and not look like an idiot

Another one:

Customer: "Uhh...I need help unpacking my new PC."
Tech Support: "What exactly is the problem?"
Customer: "I can't open the box."
Tech Support: "Well, I'd remove the tape holding the box closed and go from there."
Customer: "Uhhhh...ok, thanks...."

I'd tell them to just send it back as if they can't figure out how to open the box they have no hope of working a PC

Could write many like that just from this place ;)

best ones are always the ppl that wont give you their DOB as they dont think we are allowed to ask for it but are very happy to hand over their credit card details

*rolls eyes* morons

Have also had people ring up here and tell us they want to move their PC to another room, the reply is yes sure you can the customer was happy after that
