Tech support employees can be some of the bravest people I know. In the world of computers, there is no telling what stupidity you will find.
One such employee found himself with a particularely difficult case. An aging man couldn't get his new computer to work, and was quick to blame faulty manufacturing. Our stalwart hero begins with the usual questions.
"Did you try turning it on?" He asks.
"Of course I did, I'm not stupid." Was the customers ever so witty response.
"Plugged it in, pressed the power button on the front, etc.?"
"Yes. I'm fairley sure I've done it all."
"Alright," The tech guy leans back in his chair, knowing he's in for the long haul. "I'm going to nead you to check the back of your computer. I'll guide you on what I want you to check." There was a short pause, followed by a sigh.
"I can't see back there."
"Well, that's easy to fix. Just grab a table lamp and we can continue."
The customer stammers, "But that won't work!"
"Well, we just had a big storm, and the power's out on the whole block!"
Instantly, the protagonist knew what to do. "I apologize for the inconvenience, sir. Please pack up and send your computer to the manufacturer, and you will recieve a full refund."
Suprised, the man asks "Why, what's wrong?"
"You are too stupid to own a computer."
