    I dont know if there has been a thread about this ever but I just thought it would be neat to do. What profession does everyone work in, I was just curious. I am a student at Mizzou right now going for a Buiness Finance degree. I currently work at B&B Agriculture as a caretaker for the farms, and at Midway USA as a recieving specialist in the warehouse. Just curious to see what you all do!

    tony learned to tell them to reboot as a result of the last conversation he had with a customer at his FORMER employer, which it so happens i have recorded for posterity:)


    "Ridge Hall computer assistance; may I help you?"

    "Yes, well, I'm having trouble with WordPerfect."

    "What sort of trouble?"

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

    "Went away?"

    "They disappeared."

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

    "Nothing."

    "Nothing?"

    "It's blank; it won't accept anything when I type."

    "Are you still in WordPerfect, or did you get out?"

    "How do I tell?"

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

    "What's a sea-prompt?"

    "Never mind, can you move your cursor around the screen?"

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

    "Does your monitor have a power indicator?"

    "What's a monitor?

    "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?"

    "I don't know."

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

    "Yes, I think so."

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

    "Yes, it is."

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

    "No."

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

    "Okay, here it is."

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

    "I can't reach."

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

    "No."

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

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


    "Dark?"

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

    "Well, turn on the office light then."

    "I can't."

    "No? Why not?"

    "Because there's a power failure."

    "A power... A power failure? Aha, Okay, we've got it licked now.

    Do you still have the boxes and manuals and packing stuff your
    computer came in?"

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

    "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."

    "Really? Is it that bad?"

    "Yes, I'm afraid it is."

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

    "Tell them you're too darned stupid to own a computer."




    ROFL...it really was you, wasn't it tony?:eek:
