Laugh your butt off
Friend: "You know that antivirus program you installed on my computer for me? It keeps popping up some sort of message about a trojan or something while I'm surfing on the internet. It doesn't seem to be doing anything about it because I keep getting the message, so I uninstalled the antivirus program. And now I don't get that message any more."(y)

I would want to rip hair out of my head if someone said that to me.

  • Tech Support: "What version of Windows are you running?"
  • Customer: "I got the computer in 2003, so I think it's a Windows 2003. Or maybe it's a Windows 2004? I got it late in the year."
  • Tech Support: "Um, ok."
  • Customer: "Is that wrong?"
  • Tech Support: "No, no, that sounds about right. Tell me, would you know what service pack you have for that?"
  • Customer: "Well, when I got to the register, the young man who rang me up said was about the 5th person to buy it. So it might be service pack 5."

  • Customer: "Do you know about this RAM stuff?"
  • Tech Support: "Yes sir, I can help you with RAM."
  • Customer: "Well, your program uses 12 grams of RAM, and this computer you gave me only has 10 grams of RAM, so you need to send me another 4 grams of RAM."
At this point I was speechless. I wasn't sure which was worse, that this guy couldn't do basic math or that he had the term so twisted. However, our calls were recorded so I couldn't say what I really wanted to.
  • Tech Support: "Uh, sir, that computer has plenty of RAM to run the program."
  • Customer: "Just send me the grams of RAM I've asked for!"
