    Many of us may think that we are a little stupid when it comes to working our computers, but read on…….Next to this bunch of people we are on a par with Einstein.

    This is a collection of some of the silliest queries that call centre operators have had to deal with. They were published in one of our daily newspapers

    OPERATOR: I need you to right-click on the open desktop.
    CUSTOMER: OK
    OPERATOR: Did you get a pop- up menue.
    CUSTOMER: No
    OPERATOR: OK. Right-click again. Do you see a pop-up menue.
    CUSTOMER: No
    OPERATOR: Can you tell me what you have done up until this point.
    CUSTOMER: Sure. You told me to WRITE click and I WROTE click……. /ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ />

    A help desk took this call from a client having trouble with his print screen. After a lot of discussion, a technician was dispatched to his home.

    CLIENT: My print screen feature will not work.
    TECHNICIAN: I've tested it and it seems to be working fine.
    CLIENT: Oh, let me try it again.

    Client presses a blank sheet of paper against the monitor screen and then pushes the “Print Screen” key. Technician starts laughing.

    CLIENT: Whats wrong?
    TECHNICIAN: I'm sorry,but when you push the “Print Screen” key, the document comes out of your printer.

    AND TO MY MIND THE BEST OF THE LOT………. /laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> /laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> /biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ /> Petals

    How funny! and I thought my customers were dim bulbs! The most common questions I get from people are 'what does zero-f-f mean and what does zero-n mean – they are words OFF and ON – people don't know how to read anymore.

    But I love Telephone Jack!!!! <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> That's the funniest!

    HAPPY LAUGH OUT LOUD NEW YEAR!!!

    I just love the one about the coffee cup holder because I could sure use one – and an ashtray <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ /> My keyboard is covered with ciggarette ash and I've spilled coffee over it on a number of occasions. I think it's about time computer makers start to think more practical when they design things <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />

    Apologies if this is old hat but for those who have not read it before- hope you enjoy it!

    The CAR versus WINDOWS

    At a recent COMDEX computer conference, Bill Gates (of Microsoft) compared the
    motor industry with the computer industry, and stated:

    If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we'd all be
    driving twenty-five dollar cars that get 1000 miles to a gallon.



    In response, GM issued the following statement:

    If GM had developed its technology like Microsoft, we'd all be driving cars
    with the following characteristics:

    For no good reason, your car would crash twice a day.

    Every time the white lines on the road are repainted, you would need to buy a
    new car.

    Occasionally your car would die on the motorway, for no good reason. You just
    accept this, restart, and drive on.

    Occasionally, executing a particularly complex manoeuvre, such as a left turn,
    your car would shutdown and refuse to restart. You would then have to
    reinstall the engine.

    Only one person at a time would be able to use your car, unless you bought Car
    95 or Car NT, but then you would have to buy more seats.

    All individual warning lights would be replaced by a single 'General
    Protection Fault' light.

    The airbag would ask “Are you sure?” before activating.

    GM would require all drivers to buy a deluxe set of Rand McNally road maps,
    even although they neither need them or want them. Attempting to delete this
    option would cause the car's performance to diminish by 50% or more. (NOTE:
    Rand McNally is a GM subsidiary company).

    Every time GM introduced a new car, buyers would have to learn to drive all
    over again, because none of the controls would operate in the same way as in
    their old cars.

    You would have to press the “Start” button to switch off the engine.

    Now where do you want to go today…….?

    Thanks Mitzimay…… <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    I love the quote…….The airbag would ask “Are you sure” before activating… <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    My computer must ask me at least four times “Do you wish to sign off” it drives me insane …… <img src='style_emoticons//ph34r.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ph34r.gif’ />
