Customer: Listen pal; don't start getting technical on me! I'm not Bill Gates.

Customer: Hi, good afternoon, this is Martha, I can't print. Every time I try, it says 'Can't find printer'. I've even lifted the printer and placed it in front of the monitor, but the computer still says he can't find it...

A woman customer called the Canon help desk with a problem with her printer.

============ =====

And last but not least...

Tech support: 'Okay Colin, let's press the control and escape keys at the same time. That brings up a task list in the middle of the screen. Now type the letter 'P ' to bring up the Program Manager.'
Customer: I don't have a P.
Tech support: On your keyboard, Colin.
Customer: What do you mean?
Tech support: 'P'.....on your keyboard, Colin.

Hey, some of us just aren't quick thinkers. I have a problem currently: my monitor is black, therefore I can't click on anything if I can't see it. Who can help with commands? I'm new at this--please forgive my lack of knowledge of blog's policies
