    Wakuu za mida, aisee hii ilikuwa posted kwenye jokes, lakini nadhani 'terminologies' siyo understood kama ambavyo itakua huku. Haya ni mazungumzo ambayo end-user alikuwa anafanya na mtaalamu wa IT.

    Assistant: Ridge Hall computer assistant; may I help you?"
    Customer: "Yes, well, I'm having trouble with WordPerfect."
    A: "What sort of trouble?"
    C:"Well, I was just typing along, and all of a sudden the words went away."
    A: "Went away?"
    C: "They disappeared."
    A: "Hmm. So what does your screen look like now?"
    C: "Nothing." "Nothing?" "It's blank; it won't accept anything when I type."
    A: "Are you still in WordPerfect, or did you get out?" "How do I tell?" "Can you see the C: prompt on the screen?"
    C: "What's a sea-prompt?"
    A: "Never mind. Can you move the cursor around on the screen?"
    C: "There isn't any cursor, I told you, it won't accept anything I type."
    A: "Does your monitor have a power indicator?"
    C: "What's a monitor?"
    A: "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?"
    C: "I don't know."
    A: "Well then, look on the back of the monitor and find where the power cord goes into it. Can you see that?"
    C: "Yes, I think so."
    A: "Great. Follow the cord to the plug, and tell me if it's plugged into the wall."
    C"... ...Yes, it is."
    A: "When you were behind the monitor, did you notice that there were two cables plugged into the back of it, not just one?"
    C: "No."
    A: "Well, there are. I need you to look back there again and find the other cable."
    C: "... ...Okay, here it is."
    A: "Follow it for me, and tell me if it's plugged securely into the back of your computer."
    C: "I can't reach."
    A: "Uh huh. Well, can you see if it is?"
    C: "No."
    A: "Even if you maybe put your knee on something and lean way over?"
    C: "Oh, it's not because I don't have the right angle - it's because it's dark."
    A: "Dark?"
    C: "Yes - the office light is off, and the only light I have is coming i n from the window."
    A: "Well, turn on the office light then."
    C: "I can't."
    A: "No? Why not?"
    C: "Because there's a power outage."
    A: "A power... A power outage? Ah, Okay, we've got it licked now. Do you still have the boxes and manuals and packing stuff your computer came in?"
    C: "Well, yes, I keep them in the closet."
    A: "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."
    C: "Really? Is it that bad?"
    A: "Yes, I'm afraid it is."
    C: "Well, all right then, I suppose. What do I tell them?"

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