There's always one. This has got to be one of the funniest thing ina long time . I think this guy should have promoted, not fired. This is true story from the Word Perfect Helpline, which was stranscribed from a recordin g 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'.

Operator: 'Ridge Hall, computer assistance; may I help you?'
Caller : 'Yes, well I'm having trouble with WordPerfect.'
O : 'What sort of trouble?'
C: 'Well, I was just typing along and all of the sudden the words went
O: 'Went away?'
C: ''They disappeared'
O: ' Hmm, so what does your screen look like now?'
C: 'Nothing.'
O: 'Nothing?'
C: 'It's blank, it wont accept anything when I type.'
O: 'Are you still in WordPerfect, or did you get out??'
C: 'How do I tell?'
O: 'Can you see the C: prompt on the screen??'
C: ' What's a sea-prompt??'
O: ' Never mind, can you move your cursor around the screen.??'
C: ' There isnt any cursor: I told you, it wont accept anything I type.'
O: ' Does your monitor have a power indicator?'
C: ' What's a monitor?'
O: ' 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 dont know.'
O: ' 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.'
O: ' Great. Follow the cord to teh plug and tell me of it's plugged into the
C: ' Yes, it is.'
O: ' 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.'
O: ' Well, there are. I need you to look back there again and find the
other cable.'
C: ' Okay, here it is.'
O: ' Follow it for me and tell me if it's plugged securely into the back of
your computer.'
C: ' I cant reach.'
O: ' Uh huh. Well , can you see if it is??'
C: ' No.'
O: ' Even if you maybe put your knee on something and lean way over??'
C: ' Oh, its not because I dont haev the right angle-it's because its dark.'
O: ' Dark?'
C: ' Yes- the office light is off and the only light I have is coming in from
the window.'
O: ' Well turn on the office light then.'
C: ' I cant.'
O: ' No ? Why not?'
C: ' Because there's a power failure.'
O: ' 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 come in ??'
C: ' Well, yes. I keep them in the closet.'
O: ' 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
C: ' Really ? It is that bad ?'
O: ' Yes, I'm affraid it is.'
C: ' Well , all right then, I suppose. What do I tell them??'
O: ' Tell them you're too stupid to own a computer !!!!!!! '
