    This has to be one of the funniest things in a long time. I think this guy should have been promoted, not fired. This is a true story from the WordPerfect Helpline, which was transcribed from a recording monitoring the customer care department. Needless to say the Help Desk employee was fired; however, he/she is currently suing the WordPerfect organization for 'Termination without Cause.'

    Actual dialogue of a former WordPerfect Customer Support employee.
    (Now I know why they record these conversations! ):


    Operator: 'Ridge Hall, computer assistance; may I help you?'

    Caller: 'Yes, well, I'm having trouble with WordPerfect.'

    Operator: 'What sort of trouble??'

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

    Operator: 'Went away?'

    Caller: 'They disappeared'

    Operator: 'Hmm. So what does your screen look like now?'

    Caller: 'Nothing.'

    Operator: 'Nothing??'

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

    Operator: 'Are you still in WordPerfect, or did you get out?'

    Caller: 'How do I tell?'

    Operator: 'Can you see the 'C: prompt' on the screen?'

    Caller: 'What's a sea-prompt?'

    Operator: 'Never mind, can you move your cursor around the screen?'

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

    Operator: 'Does your monitor have a power indicator??'

    Caller: 'What's a monitor?'

    Operator: '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?'

    Caller: 'I don't know.'

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

    Caller: 'Yes, I think so.'

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

    Caller: 'Yes, it is.'

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

    Caller: 'No.'

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

    Caller: 'Okay, here it is.'

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

    Caller: 'I can't reach.'

    Operator: 'OK. Well, can you see if it is?'

    Caller: 'No..'

    Operator: 'Even if you maybe put your knee on something and lean
    way over?'

    Caller: 'Well, it's not because I don't have the right angle -- it's
    because it's dark.'

    Operator: 'Dark?'

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

    Operator: 'Well, turn on the office light then.'

    Caller: 'I can't.'

    Operator: 'No? Why not?'

    Caller: 'Because there's a power failure.'

    Operator: 'A power ...... A power failure? Aha. Okay, we've got it
    licked now. Do you still have the boxes and manuals and
    packing stuff that your computer came in?'

    Caller: 'Well, yes, I keep them in the closet.'

    Operator: '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.'

    Caller: 'Really? Is it that bad?'

    Operator: 'Yes, I'm afraid it is.'

    Caller: 'Well, all right then, I suppose. What do I tell them?'

    Operator: 'Tell them you're too stupid to own a computer!'
